Well, I finally got 98SE installed and working, but when I tried to run the XP disc to upgrade to that, it wouldn't run. Got an error message but can't remember what it was now and can't find the paper I wrote the details down on. (It is a pain having to share one monitor between the two, but I haven't got space to set two monitors up here.)
It could be that the CD is damaged or corrupted. It has been "kicking around" for ages. My regular computer already had XP installed when I bought it, so I haven't needed the other XP CD for anything since I used it to upgrade the old computer ages ago. ( I am sure the friend I plan on giving the computer to won't mind only having 98, so it is no big deal.)
I do have a problem with the 98, in that I cannot alter the display settings. The settings are just as if the computer is in safe mode (16 colours) and won't alter. Does anyone have any suggestions on this?
