    I am going to install Win2K on my computer, which is now running Win98. I plan on formatting the hard drive then doing a clean install of Win2K. Is there any way to salvage my drivers I am currently using so that I can have them ready when I install Win2K? Any other must do's or tips you can think of that will help me install Win2K more smoothly would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    win2k has a lot of generic drivers so most of your stuff should be supported minimally. Best bet is to hit the manufacturer's site and download the win2k version of the drivers, win98 drivers won't work in win2k
