how to take backup of registry of a particular date and is it possible again to install it at some other date.
since win98 keeps 5 current backups of registry so we don't get the option of installing registry of some particular date.

Yes.
Go to Run on the start menu - type Regedit.

Now click Registry ---> Export Registry File and select All and it should save you registry to a .reg file. Just name this as the date you wish and save it somewhere safe !
To get it back again just run regedit and click on Registry --> Import registry File and select your saved .reg file.

Ooops..... slow connection means it looks like it was doing absolutely nothing. Sorry about that. I hope I don't do it again with this one !

Your best bet is to actually copy the system.dat and user.dat files out of your windows\system directory.  I wrote a simple batch file to do this.  It backs them up to my zip drive, but could be modified to back them up to a second HDD.  The files together can grow to upwards of 10MB total, and the attributes need to be modified to copy them.  I can give you my backup and restore bach files if you'd like.

Oh, o the topic of exporting the .reg files...

this can be a problem, because retoring this does not actually restore the registry, it simple adds all the keys stored in the .reg fiel, keeping any keys in the existing registry that aren't in the .reg file.
