I wish to upgrade my Win98 to Win98SE so I can upgrade my video card from a i740 to a Geforce 2 MMX 400.
In time I wish to a complete format and reinstall.

My question is whether I can Upgrade 98SE over 98 using the same procedure in the latest issue of PC World without formatting etc.

Sorry, don't recall that part in mag. But normally, you would just install over top of the existing installation using a 98SE disk.
Always backup the info you can't afford to lose before any major excercise, because in software, even the simplistic of procedures can go wrong.

Have you got an "Upgrade" Win98SE CD?
Or a full install CD?

If the former, should be OK as its designed to "Upgrade"

If the latter, its more likely to be seen by the OS as a full install.
