yet to see a stable upgrade of 2K onto 98, guess it can happen, but you really should go woth a fresh install

CPU idle, or any software that uses the HLT cmd with 2K can freez it up like u describe

look in your Rclick mycomputer\manage\event viewer application and system logs see what they have to say about what is going on
