i don't think you will have any problems upgrading to 2000 from 98. as
far as xp goes you MAY have a problem since winXP may be a lot less
backwards compatible with win98 than it would be with win2k.

win98 => win2k = OK!
win2k => winXP = OK!
win98 => winXP = maybe OK!

i have not had much dealing with winXP so that's why i'm not sure. try
http://groups.google.com/ and search for "upgrading from win98 to winxp"
and see what you get.
