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.

John Brandt" We do not have a network to work with.... that will be the ideal thing to do. 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 the original CD. Peter Vidal Pall Aeropower Corp.
