Hello:

Your computer meets the requirements for being able to install Windows XP, but your system will be very slow unless you install more RAM.

How did you uninstall Windows 98? You say you've tried it with no luck. What does that mean exactly? At what point does the install crash, or are you not even able to get it started?

Give us more detailed information about your problem and we may be able to assist you.

Let us know......
