HOW DO I REMOVE WIN 98 PROGRAMS IN AN XP ENVIRONMENT?

Question

Updated to a new H.D. and retained 2 slave drives which contain file programs on these 2 slave drives G:// & H://. I need to Uninstall at least 2 Programs but I can't locate the Install/Uninstall button on my slave drives which formerly were in Win 98. I have trnsferred some files to my new C:// by copy and paste. Naturally my new H.D. does not have any way that I can Uninstall those slave drive programs which are incompatible, other than deleting them,They do not show up in my Win XP Uninstall or install Program either.

I will not delete the programs in the slave drives as the Registry may not delete those files and Programs but cause a lot of problems. How can I legitimately Uninstall those programs that are not compatible with Win XP? What do I do in this situation.? I am stuck!

Thanks- David

THERE ARE TWO WAYS, FIRST, AND DIFFICULTLY, YOU CAN CREATE A 98 PARTITION IN THE MASTER DRIVE, AND USE 98 TO REMOVE SAID PROGRAMS SECONDLY ONCE NEEDED PROGRAMS ARE REMOVED, SAID DRIVES CAN BE FORMATTED EITHER FROM BIOS, OR BY USING XP DISK MANAGEMENT.
