Plus, if you've looked at the number of problems people are having with Win XP (either version), you may have similar or worse problems running XP at the minimum requirements Micro$oft states.
Try re-installing Win 98 without reformatting HD first. It may take several reboots to get through it. I hope you made a boot disk for use with Win 98. If not, do so before you start a re-install.
As for the CD-Rom, try removing the driver using the Add/New Hardware utility in Control Panel. Before removing driver, try to find an updated driver online to install. If none, you'll have to use Win 98's generic driver. You can get to Device Manager, too, by right clicking the "My Computer" icon on the desktop and choosing Properties and then the Device Manager tab. Find your CD-Rom drive and select it (highlighted), then click Properties and then the Driver tab in window that pops up. Click Update Driver button and install driver again.
Hope I got this correct for Win 98. It's almost 4 am and things are getting fuzzy and this is last post for me today.
