XP is actually a better O/S for games, though I prefer 2K for the development stuff I do. Unless you're having an issue where you have to upgrade W98, or you're unhappy with the stability, I'd stick with it.
i have used 98 and 2k and havent seen a difference in ability to play games.
that includes games like:
starcraft brood wars
age of empires
diablo (III i think, havent played it in months)
im going in
mechwarrior 3 (offline and online)
duke nukem 3d
MS combat flight simulator
red baron 3d
sim city 3000
darkages online roleplaying
a whole load of games from the internet...
and tons more that i cant member right now....
the only difference i found was my modem disc didnt come with a driver for 2k, so i had to download one....
