Hi

go to www.ebay.com (or which ever is your local ebay site) and search for 'windows 98'

You will be able to get one from there for little cost.

I think that you might be able to get a "downgrade" license for this. Contact your supplier or Microsoft direct.

Good Luck

Do you wish to:
Run both XP and 98 on the same PC?

Downgrade to W98 from XP?

Or, install W98 on a different PC?

The simple answer is yes, you can buy just a license.
In addition to e-bay, weekend computer sales and websites such as www.pricewatch.com can be good sources.

Even if you get a license, you still need a W98 install CD to load W98.
Make sure that the license you get matches the type of W98 CD you have!
Retail,
Upgrade,
OEM,
First Edition,
Second Edition

If the license does not match, the product code won't work for installing W98.

If you are looking to downgrade from XP to W98, read the license agreement for your version of XP closely.
Some licenses allow you to "downgrade" to a previous version of Windows.
