What is in 98SE that makes you want to run the upgrade?  If your system
is running OK, I don't recall anthying in SE that makes the upgrade
worth risking system stability.  If you do in fact need to do it, then I
would consider a scratch install.  You would probably benefit greatly
from getting rid of remnants of Win95.  As for XP I would not consider
putting it on anything less then a 400 processor and 256 megs of RAM.

Subject: [24hoursupport] Win98 SE upgrade

I read that if you run a Windows98 SE upgrade cd, it will have trouble
if your Windows98 was itself an upgrade from Windows 95. Any idea why or
what kind of trouble could happen? 

Also that if your pc runs okay with Win98, it'll run slower on XP. Any
idea *how much* slower?
