I got a AMD K6 3D processor running Windows XP. 500 MHz, 188 RAM (Upgraded). My speed is realling bad and a friend of mine said my computer would run better on Windows 98. (My defualt system or wateva.) I had Windows 98 then put on XP. Now I want to get rid of XP and go back to Windows 98. I copied all the important files, I don't care if my other programs get deleted either. Someone help please.

www.bootdisk.com

download an win98se bootdisk, and boot to floppy (if it does not boot at first to floppy, you may have to change the boot order in system Setup.)

Boot without cd rom support

at the A:>
type
fdisk
choose
Delete partition
choose delete non-dos partition
reboot, leaving floppy in drive
then create a new partition
then format
then install win98


Those are the rough steps...here is an excellent walkthrough

You may want to read another guide before you start.
There is an excellent reference on this site at:
