Does anyone know what files the Windows 98 Setup is searching for to verify for an upgrade.  For example windows 95 looks for Winver.exe and Win.com to verify for the upgrade.

Sorry to give the bad news... but the upgrade looks for various files in various
directories on the system or media.  It looks for well over 40+ files and I gave up counting
after that.

So, in summary... you can do a clean install from a WIN98 upgrade CDROM, but
be prepared to place your WIN95 CDROM or floppy disks in your PC when the upgrade
cannot find the WIN95 files on yoiur system.

Thanx for the info.  I was just wondering if you could still sheat by only copying a few files to the hard drive.
