    I have a Celeron 800, running windows 98SE

    Is is possible to boot from a USB hard drive, with win 98 SE installed

    Is there any software that available that will enable me to do this.

    Is my hardware / bios too old to be able to do this.

    It would be in the BIOS setup in the "boot device" section if the
    system can support it. Otherwise, you may want to research the
    possibility of booting to a floppy which in turn points to an OS on
    the USB.
