I think i already know the answer.. My machine is running XP i have the hard drive partitioned Into 2 drives I used to have a dual boot with XP and 2000 but i got rid of 2000. Now i want the dual boot back.. Can I installl 2000 without losing any data?? I know how to create the dual boot normally but i dont' want to lose the data i have on the machine now??

Any suggestions???

If you still have the partition available, you can simply install Windows 2000 back onto that partition. If you don't have the partition available, simply use Partition Magic to make it again (you won't loose any data) and then reinstall to that partition.
