I would suggest fixing the Win98 rather than going to ME, unless you are
prepared for the thousands of fixes and/or errors in ME. In earlier versions
of Symantec products, there was an Uninstall utility that would allow you to
uninstall/save for later use. I used to use it to save space.
A very long time ago, we used to use a DB9 to DB9 serial cable to connect
two PC's and use HyperTerminal to connect the two systems. We transferred
files using the Com ports. I haven't done it in about 7 years. The only
other alternative to actually back the data up would be to use WinZip or
another zip utility that would allow you to span across floppy disks. 

Good luck,
John Brandt

We do not have a network to work with....  that will be the ideal thing to

I do have Symantec 2004 Professional Edition but I do not know if that will
help.  I was planning also to format the drive and install WinME....I have
original CD.
