    Welcome to TSG!

    I hope this advise is not too late, but you should never upgrade from 98 to w2k. All you will get is problems. Back up your data and perform a clean install (you don't have to delete the old windows folder unless you need the disk space). After the clean install, re-install all of your apps. You can then copy your favorites and documents from the windows folder to the new folders under Documents and Settings, or into winnt folder if needed. If you aren't sure you will keep the w2k install, don't change the disk format to NTFS, leave as FAT32. If you want to convert later for security or performance, that is easy.

    Yes, whether you upgrade or do a clean install, you will have to download the w2k drivers first. W2k may have native drivers that work, but I would get the manufacturer's drivers if available.

    Good Luck!
