hi, i am wanting to upgrade from window 95 to 98. have the instalation disc (original) but when I start the process I get the "message SU0168" error. Anyway to overcome this? I did some google-ing and found some sites that looked like you can get around it without too much trouble, so a step by step instruction list would be great.

thanks
dave

If in fact your Win 98 install CD is a full version, you would be much better off doing a clean install of Win 98 rather than an upgrade anyway, and get rid of Win 95 so that detrius is not carried over.

It is also possible to do a clean install from an upgrade disk as well, with a bit of a file fiddle, which you would have to find out using Google. I cant remember now what the trick is.

It is always better to do a clean full install rather than an upgrade.
