    I am in the middle of installing win2000 from winME and it just gave me the upgrade report for plug and play devices. Everything looks good except it said that need an updated file for the WDM Communication Device/Modem enumerator -- dumb question, is that my modem? I have a year old HP Pavilion and have already downloaded the driver for win2000 for my model and will install it after upgrade--- is it something I need to worry about?

    If your upgrade from ME works out ok then it is fine. If you encounter problems such as system instability, lockups, etc, I would reformat and do a clean installation. A clean install seems to work better.
