See the following Microsoft Knowledgebase Articles:

I do not use AOL. Perhaps other readers could add their first-hand experience.

If your copy of SE is an upgrade, you can install it on top of Win 98. Otherwise, a backup followed by a clean install is probably the best way to do it. I do not think SE is worth is worth the time it takes to do a clean install. Larry
