    The reason you can't get into Msconfig on W2K is because it doesn't exist. In their infinite wisdom, Micro$oft didn't include it.

    They put it back into XP. The XP version works perfectly well in W2K and can be downloaded from here

    From what I've heard, the Windows XP version of MSCONFIG will work with Windows 2000. It's just a matter of getting a copy of it and placing it in the correct location.
