Hi Matt
   I have done this, (new HP with winXP, owner wanted 98se) The first thing 
that I did was gather information about the hardware. Then went to the HP site 
to make sure that all drivers were available. Downloaded all drivers before I 
fdisk and formated the drive. Installed 98se and the owner is a happy camper. 
I would recommend that you back up any files that she wants to keep. Then go 
for it.
Good luck
