My XP machine turned into a boat anchor and while repair shop is trying to figure out what happened (most likely a very lengthy endeavor and probably another topic in this forum), I resurrected this machine. Runs fine, all current on upgrades and protection software, however I need 98SE to run several programs- most notable my digital camera system (just returned from vacation and can't print pictures). I have a full install disk of 98SE, but am afraid that installing it will wipe out existing programs on the puter that I will not be able to replace. Is it possible to upgrade w/o wiping the drive? The book included with the SE program talks about upgrading from 3.11 without losing existing programs, but does not mention a 98 to SE upgrade.
Thanks for any information/ suggestions anyone can provide!

Yep. Done it many times. As long as you have a working previous version of windows 98 you can install Win 98SE with no problems. Good choice as it has some better drivers and features over Win 98.
