Default Windows Home

About a year ago i bought a windows xp home upgrade disk and havent used it because its only an upgrade disk , it needs to have windows 98 or millenium already installed , is it worth it to guy buy windows 98 and then install xp on a new computer or just go buy a whole new xp that doesnt require previous windows? And where can i still get windows 98.

I mite still be able to return it actually but i doubt it.

I disagree. You can get win 98 for $50 off of ebay. Why would you go spend $100 and something on a new version of XP when he already has the upgrade version?
