Default HELP please

I am too dumb to figure this on my own. I am not familiar with bing or any other thing. I am trying to set up a dual boot system. I have Nt loaded on a system with no internet acces and want to put win 2000 server on the same system. NT does not accept my NIC card for whatever reason. Can I please get some detailed step by step on help on what I need to do. Please explain it like you would to a 5 year old. I appreciate any help.

a nic has nothing to do with a dual boot. you just need 2 partitions, install nt on c:\ and 2000 server on d:\

insert 1st os disc and install as usual to c: drive

after your done insert 2nd os cd and select drive d: and install as usual and your done

when you go to boot you will see a dos screen where you can select which of the 2 OS you want to install.

thanks for helping me. You are very kind. Should I start by putting on NT for now only, please?

you can try putting 2000 on first and then nt.

but what does it do when you go to install the next os on the other partition?

what did you use to make your partitions?
