Thinkpad 760XL OS upgrade from Win95 to Win98

\015 Win98 is installed on machine but I cannot use Windows Explorer. The devices seem to work (CD-ROM, 3COM PCMCIA card). Most times the system chokes when I try to navigate with the mouse. What I would like to do is get the machine 'operational' (ie not constantly crashing, load Word and install a USB port to gain some wireless connectivity. If it is not possible for under $100, then I'll just look for another used machine.\015\012\015\012Thanksbeforehand for any assistance you can provide:-)\015
