If the XP drive was formatted with NTFS the 98 disk won't be able to see it correctly.
What issue(s) are you having that is requiring you to try this?
Do you have your XP disk?

She is gettion a stop message 0xc000005.
It would not boot in any mode and I thought maybe the 98 disk would boot it.
She finally brought me the owners manual this morning and I was not aware it had a system recovery program on the hard drive and not on disk. I am running the program now and hopefully it will fix the problem.
Thanks for getting back to me so quick.

The most common culprit of this error message is the Explorer.exe file.
By doing the recovery it should resolve that issue and allow everything to reboot correctly.
I'm not sure if you are doing a full reinstall or just a repair installation but it should fix the problem either way. Please let me know how it works out in the end and if there are any other questions you may have.

The recovery program fixed what was keeping it from booting up but now her Internet Explorer isn't working.
She has an internet connection but IE says she doesn't.

I am suspecting the network card is not installed.
Go to start.....run....type in devmgmt.msc and hit ok
Lets start here

Every thing worked fine except her internet when she took it home last week.
Now it boots up but I keep getting 3 messages
1)Explorer.EXE has encountered a problem and needs to shut down.
2)Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to shut down.
This happens even without having Internet Explorer open.
3)The exception privileged instruction (0xc0000096) occured at location ox77c73alc.
