I'm thinking of upgrading my Windows 98 SE operating system to Windows XP on
my Dell Dimension XPS T450 . I have 384 MB of ram and plenty of extra room
on the hard drive.

Would anyone know if XP would work with my current configuration and should
I expect to lose any information on my hard drive.

Thanks...

Run the MS upgrade utility. It'll check out all your hardware and
software for compatibility issues. It's a big d/l (over 30 megs) so a
broadband connection is just about required.

I've got the same system, but with 640 megs. There were "some" issues.
And, given the Sasser worm problems of last week, I'm just a little
hesitant to change my OS.

I have the same machine. WinXP is fine. My Turtle Beach sound cord was
supposed to be incompatible but it works OK.

Do a clean install of XP. Have all your data in another partition or backed
up before you wipe Win 98.
