    I got xp currently running on the primary C: drive. I intend to install win2000 on the other partition, D: drive so that I can have a dual booting. The problem is, when I try to install win2000, it's disabling the "install win2000" option and saying that u got a better vesion already. How can I go about this.

    You always need to install the oldest operating system on c: drive first. You now have two choices:

    Reformat and install 2K first or

    Use a third party utility such as Partition Magic 7.0 which should be able to do what you want without having to reformat.

    Try booting from the Win2k cd, then choosing partition...
