    OK, here is the deal I have windows 2000 on one hard and I would like to install windows nt or 2000 on the other drive. The company that I work for, is worried that I will mess up their software on this one drive with other apllications. I need some advice they want me to run their software on nt workstation 4.0, but it can run on 2000. All I need is a simple solution to make everyone happy. The big 40 gig for my junk and the 10 gig for work. Without messing up the registry.

    Thanks,
    David

    Hi,

    Windows Nt/2000 Are The Same. Windows 2000 is just version 5.0 to NT. What you should do is just leave windows 2000 if you dont know what exactly your doing.

    I know that windows 2000 and nt are the same. What I am looking for is a solution. The easiest way to do this without screwing up my 2000 platform. I have my A+ and CCNA. I just want to be sureThis software that I am running is very expensive....So I need a solution answer.

    Thank You,
    David

    You can install one operating system on each disk and then configure the bios to boot off of disk 0 or disk 1. Another way is to use a boot manager such as boot magic. I think this is what you are asking for. I think it would be easier just to create another account on the existing operating system, less complicated and would leave more hd space.
