Installing Windows 98 over '95

I've been putting off upgrading my PC as I want to get a new one, and go straight from '95 to XP. Unfortunately, Mcafee have stopped supporting '95, so if I want to update my virus scan I've got to do something now. If I can get hold of a '98CD, can I install it over '95 without destroying everything else on my C: drive ?

Thanks Broggs - nothing like instant help !

You can only install a "98" upgrade over 95, not a full Win 98 CD.

Thanks pj - there's another thread about that which I'll have to read again.

Thanks jester - it could be an easier answer ! Trouble is I've only recently renewed my sub, and I'm not hopeful about getting it back !

You won't get it back. It took me 6 months to cancel my McAfee subscription.
