    if you formatted, then no, and if you didn't format, then no also :)

    you can only restore a system back to a previous OS if you upgraded and chose to save the old OS.

    it makes a restore point and when you choose to go to that restore point you're returned to your old OS.

    at least i think that's how it used to work. i've never used it myself, so i can't be 100% certain.

    that may be worth a shot, but it sounds a bit risky, a clean format would be the best idea!

    Also depends on whether or not you converted to NTFS on your HDD.

    Win98 only reads FAT16 and FAT32. NTFS is a no-no for Win98.
