I've partitioned my hard drive and put win 2000 Pro on one half and xp home edition on the other. However, win 2000 freezes up on me after about half an hour. No one seems to know why as they should both be compatible.

Ya, you shouldn't have any problem dual booting them - I have the same setup (except with XP Pro).

What programs do you have running at startup. Does it happen when you're in certain apps (like when you're online or something)?
It just freezes? No errors, just no response from keyboard/mouse?

Don't have many programs. It boots normally, though a bit slow, but hangs after about half an hour. I could be in any program. Most programs are in xp. Even tech experts are baffled.

If the two operating systems are on two separate partitions, they would have absolutely no effect on each other. Instead of focusing on the fact that you have a dual boot system, focus just on the Windows 2000 installation. What programs do you have installed? Are they fully compatible with Windows 2000? Are you connected to a network?

I don't have anything but Freeserve on it. All my apps are on xp. I'm studying 2000 pro MCSE so I'm leaving it free of all other stuff.
