I plan to format my C: drive soon with WIndows ME installed. When I format i will intall Wondow 2k. I want and NEED a stable windwos, I was told Windows 2k is good for that. Please tell me if this is a good idea. Also any one have any important tips that i may want to know about windows 2k or formating a hard drive? BTW I have one hard drive partitioned into C: and D:. I will leave the D: part alone and only format the C: part. Is this okay? I have P3 800. 128 MEG RAM. NVIDIA VANTA. WIndows ME(horrible)...Thank you

That should be OK, but I would make sure that I had two backups of critical data before proceeding. See http://www.microsoft.com/technet/win2000/win2kpro/default.asp for more info. Larry

Make sure that all your cards have w2k drivers. My brother recently setup a dual boot and found out that his Diamond Viper 550 does not have W2k drivers. and thet no longer are in the video business.

His card will work fine under W2k, he just needs to install the standard TNT drivers from nVidia as the V550 was a TNT based card those drivers will work just fine.

Win2K is the best piece of software to come from MS without any doubt. To install t just boot from the CD & choose format this partition with NTFS when you have chosen drive c: as the install drive.
