running Win98SE on Win 7 64 bit system

I just bought a win 7 64 bit system and would like to install Win98SE
because I have some old pgms I still use that won't load on Win 7 (even with the XP upgrade)

Can I partition to get the Win98 to operate like it did on my old system?

Thanks!
Bill

probably not

it's unlikely that '98 drivers would be available for the new system.
Do you still have the old computer to use? if not maybe you can find someone giving one away or selling very cheap, here you can't give them away, as no one wants them and they finish up as scrap.
If we knew what progams, someone may be able to suggest alternatives.

I'm going with no.
