    Check with the laptop manufacturer to see if it is supported. A lot of the time, manufacturers have information about upgrading the OS to a different version somewhere on thier website. Unfortunately, they sometimes bury it so far down in thier site that you feel like you need a backhoe to dig it out.

    If anything, WIN2K will hav ea problem picking up your sound card. It's usually pretty good about picking up CD ROM and DVD drives. What brand computer do you have?? And did you receive a driver disk with it?
