i recently upgraded widows 98 to xp using a copied disc it seemed to load ok, but on final re-boot an on screen message appeared saying that a fatal error had occurred and that to protect my system windows was shutting down, before i actually got to windows start up screen, any ideas ?

Try to reboot again! If this disk was copied I presume you`ve put in a CD Key supplied with it - it`s unlikely to be able to register the product and of course is illegal.

Upgrading from 98 is likely to be tortuous anyway without significant upgrades to hardware. (RAM, processor etc)
