You should only post once. But, I replied to your other post as well as this one.

You will need Windows 98 Upgrade disk since a Windows 98 full version cannot be used to upgrade from Windows 95.

Get the Windows 98 Second Edition Upgrade since it is much better than Windows 98.

Go to this eBay auction site, and only buy from vendors with 99-100% positive profile to prevent getting ripped off.

Limiting your posts to two forums is a good idea. My solution is on the other response. Cost will be a few mouse clicks.
