    Is it better to run disk defragmenter in Safe Mode.

    Yes. It's better because fewer files are in use by the Windows system during the defrag, therefore a more thorough defrag can be performed. It's better, but it's not a big deal.

    It matters little in XP but it is near mandatory in Win9x.

    True, if you are running win9x it will be a lot less of a pain in the butt in safe mode.
