that would not be legal....if you purchased an xp llicense from microsoft you could use his disk....but you would have to pay to get the license...IF you're going to upgrade you need to buy your own copy

well...i've looked at some of your problems here...and honestly most of them arent 98's fault...it may be outdated but it is still a good home OS...it's easy to use and you can do MOST things that you would need to do...
