    Hey guys just a quick question. I installed WIN XP then after that I installed Win 2k and now I have a problem booting up with WIN XP again. Is there a program I can use to revert back and forth between the two? thanks

    it's because when you installed XP you hosed your boot manager that XP installed, just boot up with the XP cd, repair the installation and next boot up you should get the option for xp or 2k :)
