How much space do you have on your harddrive?
XP takes up a lot of space, so you should leave about 1 gig dedicated to it.
If you don't have enough space then just stay with 98.

I have a pentium 2 processor and 112kb of cache ram. Is it possible to install XP in place of 98?
Will I be able to install windows xp once i change the RAM ?

112 cache is built into the processor and not changable ,unless you change cpu' to one with more cache,you will need to add sdram, to the computer and like other poster says have enough space on harddrive for xp and its more than 1 gig,more like 2.5 gig .also if you really don't want to slow your computer to a crawl ,leave win98 on it .

Windows XP will crawl with a Pentium 2. As advised, simply don't do it.

If you need XP, then buy/build something current with at least 1GB RAM on it.
