    A friend installed 2000 over 98, is it all possible to unistall the 2000 and restore the 98. The HD wasn't reformatted when the 2000 was installed and they can still get to the 98, but only in safe mode. Any ideas or solutions would be greatly appreciated.

    If they chose to save the 98 setting when asked during the 2000 install, you should have an option to revert.

    Hello DaveBurnett, how do I find that option is it in the 2000 or 98?

    Whoops, I just looked it up and you can't do it going 98 to 2k.
    Sorry.
