I will be needing to move some files from a computer running 98 to one running xp. Is it possible to just pull the old hd and temporarily put it into the new computer to copy the needed files? And would it be better to have the programs needed to open these files on the new computer before transferring them? Thanks

I see no issue in using temporarily the disk in a slave position on the XP box. As to whether it is better to install the application software first is a question of where the application stores the data files. If it uses its own directory structure and not the user profile I would install the programs first.
