You might be limited as to what you can do depending on your equipment. You should consult Http://www.micorosft.com/hcl to check compatibility of your hardware and find out what you need prior to upgrading. Never the less, I would do a clean install of winme. Winxp is really the way to go if you can.

I would get atlest 128MB of RAM and a 20GB harddrive. I would go with Windows 2000 over Windows ME, b/c ME is basicly a stripped down kiddie version of 98, with more errors. Another reason is that you dont need to go and find drivers for 2000 when install anything that connect via the USB ports, with Windows 98 you have to install these drivers before conneting the device. Hope that this helps.
