If your data means anything at all, you should back it up and reinstall everything from sctatch. Use the WIN2K CD partition options to clean off your HD.
If you want a dual boot, then install WIN9X *first*, and leave enough room on the HD (4 or 5 GB) for WIN2K. If you don't want a dual boot, then just install WIN2K with whatever file system you prefer. If you install WIN2K on a small NTFS partition (about 4 or 5 GB), you can use Disk Manager to create RAID drives or dynamic volumes on the rest of your HD.
If you still want to clean up your present mess, then please post more info:
1) When you boot, do you see a menu from which to choose WIN2K or WIN9X??
2) If there's no boot choice menu, are you booting straight into WIN2K??
3) How many partitions do you have and what are their respective file systems?
(Are you using FAT 16, FAT 32 or possibly NTFS)?
4) What are the *exact* contents of the "default=" line in your <boot.ini> file?
5) Do you know where to find the <boot.ini> file, how to use attrib to make it visible,and how to edit <boot.ini> if you need to?
6) Do you know how to make and use an Emergency Recovery Disk?
7) Are you prepared to use the WIN2K Recovery Console if needed?
