Hi I have just started to put a bigger Hard Drive into my second PC for Win2000 its not new so I have started at fdisk and formatted it. At the prompt what do I type to start the install.

No need to fdisk or format. 2000 will do all this in setup.

Just set your cdrom drive as first boot and 2000 will do the rest, just like XP.

Then use the link at the bottom of that page click here to walk you through the full installation.

It does take a lot longer than XP to install.

Not a bad system when installed but is a pain when first setting up IE you will need all your drivers for your hardware and hope you are on broadband the updates are over 75MB+.
