    I have two HDD, namely 10GB and 20GB HDD in my system.
    System layout
    AMD Duron 800GHz with 512MB Ram

    I have this 10GB, & partitioned to C& E drive to cater for Win 98SE and win2k sever.
    On my 2nd HDD(20GB), partitioned it to D & F drive, to cater for NT4 and XP.

    Is it adviceable to partition different o/s in two HDD or have them dumped into one physical HDD?
    (I have Partition Magic 7.0 installed on C drive)

    I read articles in the web(can't recall where is URL) that if you are
    installing NT on win2k, some of the system files will be overwritten as a result, even if you are installing nt on E drive, having installed win2k on D drive and 98SE on C drive.
    (Assuming I have only one 10GB HDD)

    What is the prior difference bet XP and win2k server feature, utilies etc??
    Is there a need to upgrade??

    Please reply to my queries.
    Appreciated it.
