upgrading windows 98 by Scott
I learned that I need to upgrade from an OEM version of 98 to second edition or milleneum in order to run some new software to sync my cell phone. Is this worth while, or am I buying more problems than it is worth? If worth the effort, how do I go about upgrading? Thank you, Scott
