    Way to switch windows 98 Profiles to Windows XP Domain User Profiles

    Hey,
    Do you want to upgrade your Ms Windows 98 based client that has a user to a Microsoft Windows XP-based client.
    The best way to maintain the Ms Win 98 or Ms Win Me profiles to be throughout the process are :
    The correct thing to hang on with your profile's, is to connect with the domain during the upgrade installation procedure.
    At the time of installation process at the networking section, the administrator is given a option to join a domain or a workgroup.
    And then when you join the domain at this point of time, you have to ensure that all the available profiles are transferred successfully to the Ms Win XP based installation.

    • If you did not wish to join the computer to the domain during the process of installation or upgrade, then you can do the following.
    • Connect your upgraded computer to the target domain.
    • All users must log on & log off. Which will create a profile in the upgraded PC.
    • And now the final part. Copy the proper application data folder form the Ms Win 98 profiles to your newly created user.
