  1. I got some PC games for my neice on Ebay and didnt notice they were for Win 95. Is there a compatibility mode in Win 2000 for 16bit programs? Thanks

    Certainly there is, but it may not work as well as in XP. You might, for instance, find a USB mouse does not work well, or indeed at all. Solve that by supplying a PS/2 mouse as well ! (wait a minute, W2K probably does not have a USB mouse to start with :rolleyes:)
