    cant you install win 2k on one hard drive, (d) and then transfer the files over to the D drive, or win 98 or something, and then install win 2k on your C drive and transfer the files again?

    yeah you can do that. i was looking for a way to do it by maybe booting to a boot disk and then going into DOs and moving the files that way. but i'm dual booting as we speak. this will work just will take some time. thanks for most of ya'lls help!
