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? :$

FAT32

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

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

2K>>>XP.
i've had many problems with xp.
been using 2K for years now.

edit:
what i've done to get 2k on the system while xp is on...i just boot from the 2k cd, delete the partition...create a new one, format.
