    I actuall have two problems. Firstly, I had been having the worst problems with my mouse which lead to me to thinking that I should reinstall win 2k with the possiblity that this would solve everything.

    The mouse is sticking and it takes 2-3 clicks to get it activated again. Then when it is idle it seems to pull to the top or side or bottom of the page on its own. I have cleaned the ball, tried another mouse and uninstalled all the sp 3 upgrades I had done. It also happens when I go into WinMe which lead me to believe that it is not a win2k prob but thought I would give it a try anyway.

    I installed the win2k cd and choose upgrade.

    WELL.... it now says that:

    "Setup cannot locate the Windows installation you want to upgrade. Contact your system administrator"

    I cannot get back to windows 2k as it keeps trying to install upgrade. I am using Partition Magic Dual Boot and if I could get back to my drive c (the duel boot now makes drive f drive c) I could at least backup the important stuff.

    I would appreciate any help to get out of this situation.

    Looking forward to any and all replies.

    Thanks in advance.
