Ok, I now have windows 2000 installed.

But there's one problem. I created a 10gb parition, formatted it, and installed windows 2000 on it. I have a 160gb hd with 2 50gb partitions that are unformatted. When I try to format one of the partitions it gives me an error (after going through the whole formatting process) that says "Volume size too big". Is 50GB too big for a singles partition? :$

EDIT: Ok I just tried NTFS and it worked, lol

I thought NTFS gave me limited accesibility in exchange for security :P
