You won't find that for Windows 98, I'd say. It's too old.

There's no reason not to upgrade to XP for real, anyway. It's so much better.

Windows 98 doesn't have the XP platform engine. YOu will never be able to use the XP theme under 98

That's what I'm saying, it's so old that many things won't work on it any more. Sad but true.

WindowBlinds does work for win98. I did it, but you won't get the XP feeling...the most would be a slight crappy change

It's still a good os. BUT it's DOS based and if you loaded it up with a lot of excess baggage it's going to give you nightmares. Remember anything you do to the themes or even wallpaper takes away from the cpu's ability to run other programs. And those items eat up memory.
