When you upgrade to xp, all your data will still be there, as well as all your programs but its always agood idea to back things up just in case.

back up for redundancy. when you're installing xp make sure you say upgrade, NOT clean install.

Uh...just out of curiosity...If your system is currently running 98SE, is it good enough to run XP? XP is NOTHING like 98 when it comes to the hardware environment.

oh God...i feel so so so unlucky...I have 733 MHz Pentium III with 192 MB RAM. It sucks to upgrade PC here (indonesia). Technology is expensive enough and limited. i think i have to save all my salaries for about a half year to have an up-to-date powerful PC...Hiks..hiks.. Oh God, why i was born in Indonesia...
Is my PC capable enough to run on XP?
