Sure, windows 98 can do 1920x1080(tru HD) but good luck finding a windows 98 supported video card to stream video at that, some of the first vista machines had problems playing HD content.
BD works on XP. All you need is the software. Like PowerDVD8 or WinDVD. Worked perfectly fine on my machine using my buddies external BD rom (HD DVD also works, btw)
