Can't you connect the PC to the net for the 98 box? Does your XP box have a burner?

like raffaz said early on, you could get a crossover cable and plug the network ports of teh 98 and XP machines together, and share the folders you want to copy from teh 98 onto the xp.

i know of a way i can get my 98 on the internet but i can't get the adapter installed right. it keeps saying its installed but when i plug it into the eithernet cable it won't connect. and i know the eithernet cable plugged into the rouder works because on my xp laptop i turned off the wireless and plugged it in and it connected to the internet just fine.

i have a windows xp laptop and desktop already.

when i go to install the eithernet adapter it keeps saying "Insert the windows 98 CD-ROM and click OK" so i do that and it comes up saying it again over and over. my CD drive is not broken. does it have to be the original CD that came with the computer or will any windows 98 cd do?
