    your pretty screwed right now on getting 98 back up and running...but not too screwed to back things up...you can take his HD out and put it into another system and back up everything that he needs to another HD...but the OS is history...

    will he be able to get his old emails,thats the main worry

    if the emails are on the HD yes...just go to the outlook folder and search for them...but you might mention to him to do this...this is what I do with important emails...I have a yahoo email that is used for nothing but important emails...I send them to that one account and they are on the yahoo server...for situations like this...never have to worry about lossing important emails...
