Somewhere in XP you can run a program in Windows 98. I think I have done it
before but I forgot where I can change it. Can anyone help? thanks

Set Compatibility Properties Manually:-

Right-click the program icon on your desktop or the shortcut on the
Start menu for the program you want to run, and then click Properties.

Click the Compatibility tab, and change the compatibility settings for
your program.

Otherwise you can run a 'Program Compatibility Wizard'

1.Click Start, and then click Help and Support.

2.Click Fixing a problem, and then click Application and software problems.

3.Under Fix a problem click Getting older programs to run on Windows XP.

4.Read the instructions and then click the Program Compatibility Wizard.
