    1) I am curious - should one do a clean install when updating from Win 98
    to Win 98 SE??

    2) if you don't need to do a clean install, how do you do it?

    Just rename win.com and install from scratch making sure you install in
    the same directory (C:\windows). Clean installs are generally the best
    way to go but in this case it doesn't seem to make any difference. I've
    done this many times.

    There is a Win98SE "Update CD" available.

    http://www.windows-help.net/windows98/start-011.htm

    That will keep all your programs intact.

    Alternatively, delete C:\windows in DOS and do a clean install of 98SE, then
    reinstall all your apps.

    Are you sure it's worth the effort to do it?

    Just upgrade into the existing Windows directory.
