Maybe

Windows 98 qualifies for the XP upgrade version. So, you can upgrade a W98 system to XP.

The reason for maybe, is do you have hardware that exceeds the minimum system requirements, and is supported by XP.

A simple test, is to go to this site
http://www.pcpitstop.com/xpready/default.asp
and run the XP readiness test.

Further, check closely with your printer and scanner mfg for XP support. Many printers have reduced funtions under XP. Many scanners do not have drivers available.

My minimum system recomendations include:
CPU 500MHz
RAM 256MB - 5GB
Hard drive - 3GB free space

Hardware to watch out for:
Aureal Vortex based sound cards
3dfx based video cards

Software issues:
Easy CD Creator 4
Power DVD 3
