Windows 98 handles enough things differently that you MUST use the upgrade version if you wish to save your W95 registry settings.

I ALWAYS perform a clean installation of Windows when updating a system.

There is just too much trash that gets stuck in the registry and system files when you do an upgrade.

From my recollections, W98 runs about 10% slower than W95.
Performing a clean install WILL reduce the effective performance loss you will see.
