I am not going to do this. I don't have all the disk anyways. Just wonder if it is possible & if anyone has done this.

I did one little experiment, didn't work though. For some strange reason windows 98se cannot be upgrade to windows xp sp2 unless there is a trick to force the upgrade. I remember reading Windows 98se can be upgrade to windows xp original.
