I am thinking about upgrading my Windows 98 install to Windows 2000.
Can I put the Windows 2000 right over the Windows 98 install on my
Win32 formatted C: drive? What are the issues involved in doing this?
Thank you!

This is NOT an "upgrade".
Two OS's with different administrative policies.
Before commiting your system try to get some info on "multitasking,
multiuser" enviroment and only then decide if it is worth it.

Good luck.

You should be posting to a W2K newsgroup so you can tap the expertise you
will find there.

Thx. I am a bit of a nerd actually. Not as much of one as you are, but
anyway......yes, I am quite familiar with a multitasking and multiuser
OS.

I already bought the Win 2000 CD and wish to install it.
