    Got another question.
    Last year I purchased a used Dell C840 laptop for a program I want to use. It has 2000pro installed on it, but it looks like I'll have to upgrade it to XP to use the program (and as a backup computer) though the program will run on 2000. The sticker on the computer says "Designed for Windows XP", so it shouldn't be a problem. The 2000pro has some good office programs (publisher, powerpoint, etc) on it I wouldn't mind keeping. Is it possible to keep them during an upgrade? I don't have the 2000 installation disc.
