Win 98 Screensaver under XP

I have a screensaver that I used on Win 98 which I would like to use
on XP. I have installed it but it doesn't appear in the drop-down box
on the scrrensaver tab of Display properties.

If I right click on the screensaver icon in the Windows directory, I
can configure and test it.

How can I get it to appear in the selection list?

The screen saver needs to go in your "System32" folder. It should show up
in the list once it's in the proper folder...

OK, when I make a fake screen saver, I right clicked on it in the System32
folder, and under test and configure was "install". This should be what you
are looking for to get your screen saver to work... If that doesn't work,
then I guess I'm at a loss to help you out...
