The long code woudn't happen to be a CD Key would it? How much memory do you have in the computer?
Here is a nice guide on how to upgrade 98 to XP

Sure, take a look at these links:

Having made you aware, I have to say that, generally speaking, you probably won't have a problem. Some persons had problems because not all XP drivers were available then. At this point in time, that's a non-issue.

Can you post the exact message you received, verbatim please?
