In the future, it would be helpful to yourself if you created a more descriptive topic.

I don't know why you think Windows 98 would be found in Add/Remove programs. That's only for uninstalling programs that you install on Windows 98.

If you have your XP CD, boot from the Windows CD, delete the Windows 98 partition, format the partition as NTFS, and then install Windows XP on it.

You can also follow the directions here.

that only applies if w98 was an upgrade to a previous version and was told to do a backup when it was installed.

regardless, xp isn't an upgrade so it will do a clean install and the w98 content will be gone.

so if you need any personal files from w98 then put them on CD or floppy before you start the xp install.
