Settings Transfer Wizard Crash

While trying to use the XP Settings Transfer Tool:
I built the FD, filled using the Files and Settings TransferWizard
(STW).
Start>Programs<Accessories<SystemTools>STW
It tries to, but cannot, of course store any more to its own floppy, so
I directed the settings from my Win98se system (as suggested by the
instructions) to a folder on my RAMstick.
During the 'Recovery' of the w98 settings to XP, it quit after partial
execution, with an error message.
.... It turns out Help>settings transfer>MsKnowledgeBase-1>Article ID :
307869 ; says this whole tool is problematical, DON'T USE IT.
OS now locks up occasionally, many settings are scrambled (few are either as
I had set in either system), and there is poor documentation of what
settings are gathered and how they are applied to the target OS.
