Is there a way to partition the drive and install win 2000?

the way to do it is to install another operating system and THEN install winxp... always easiest coz winxp is not happy about allowing you to install other o/s's

I used to have win2k and winxp dual boot... install win2k and create partitions if you want... then when you install winxp you will be asked if you want to overwrite or create new partition... create new one or install in a previously created partition...


and there you are :)

Thanks Sazar

Is there a way without re-installing Xp as my machine was pre-loaded when purchased and i have installed loads of software already

Thanks
