I need to upgrade a Windows 98 computer, and the hardware won't support any newer operating system.

It's still available from Amazon -

They also have an upgrade, you'll have to ccheck whether that is suitable for you.

Win2K only needs 32 MB RAM at a minimum, though 64 MB is recommended.

You can bring that old windows 98 computer into the year 2012 with no problems but first let me explain something to you, If you do or could get your hands on a old copy of Windows 2000 Professional it would do you no good, you would still need to find all the systems hardware drivers for 2000, which today would be an impossibility plus Windows 2000 Professional needed 1 gig of ram, I almost sure that windows 98 systems had 256 or 512 megabytes of ram installed.

Take a look at this website. this operating system will give you any windows desktop. 2000, Vista, xp, windows 7 or Mac OS/x desktop. at the click of the mouse button,
