HD and OS upgrade

As usual, I'm looking for the easiest way.
Gateway running 98SE on a 10 Gig HD Primary. Customer had a slave 60 Gig installed a while ago as D: drive. Sittin' there doing nothing. Have 512 Ram.
The C: drive is full and won't accept the new CD upgrade to XP home. I'm going to make the 60G the primary with the XP on it.
Need suggestions on how to keep the programs now on the 98 drive, also the drivers, and move them to the newly installed XP. Have some original installation disks but not all.
I can do a clean install of the XP since I have the 98 disk to qualify the upgrade.
Also have access to Drive Image 2002 and a few others proggies.
Would like to get this done ASAP.

I admit it - I use QP.

Programs, such as Office, have registry entries, so selective restoring won't work.  Even upgrading to XP will require a reinstallation of Office, so other programs may have similar requirements.  All in all, an iffy proposition, but better than nothing.

If the problem is that there isn't sufficient space, clone the 10GB drive to the 60GB drive, remove the 10GB and make the 60GB the primary, and then upgrade it to XP.

(You gotta have Ameba's QP)
If I get it, install the Drive Image on the C:, send it to the D: as an image, install the XP, than restore selectively what I need.
Will that work?
