Originally, I have win98 in my computer. After I install win2k upgrade version, both win98 and win2k are in my computer. As I don't need to use win98, I want to remove win98 from my computer.

So, how to do it safely and completely?

Did you install Win2000 as an upgrade on top of Win98? If so then Win98 Should be listed in the Add/Remove Programs and you can remove it from there. If not and Win98 is on a seprate partition then you can just delete all the stuff on that partition. If it is setup as a dual boot you will need to edit the boot.ini file and remove the line refering to Win98.

>>>do I need to delete all the win98 directory?

Yeah just delete the Win98 Folder. That is about as good as are going to be able to do since there is no Unistall for it. This is presuming of course the Win98 directroy usually \Windows is not the directory Win2000 is installed usually \WINNT.
