If you are going to be using WinXp+Off 2k there's a gotcha trying to edit
templates with a digital signature generated from selfcert in office 2k.
The upgrade is one of the cleanest I have seen - especially for an os.

I'm using W98 and muy laptop has 196 mb ram. I go in and out of
applications that require large pices of RAM fairly often throughout
the day and I find that I must reboot often becuase 98 tends to not
give back on release, as much of thr ram as it took. Therefore, my
available resources grt smaller and smaller until I reboot.
I want to upgrade to XP (not 2000, pleasee don't suggest it) and I
would like to do it without a reformat. I know it would be better if
I did, but I cannot right now.
Question...how well does the upgrade work...is it a clean upgrade?
