  1. I have two W2k installations on my computer and would like to remove the old one. I have all that I want to copy over from the old one and just want to totally remove the old W2k from my machine. I haven't the first clue how to do this . Honestly I don't know how I ended up with two W2k on my system. I thought I was just reinstalling W2k. Anyway, any help will be appreiciated.

    The instance of Win2K that you wish to remove, where is it located ? Locate the boot.ini file on C: & remove the entry of the obsolete Win2K. Then it should only be a matter of removing the program-files & winnt folder of the OS that you no longer use. Double check & triple check before you delete that folder & you shouldn't have any problems.

    If the instance you want to remove, is on the C-drive, DON'T delete the following from the C-root:
    - boot.ini
    - boot.bak (if there)
    - cmldr (if there)
    - ntldr
