W2k does not take up too muchspace and I re-build old PC's with much smaller hard drives than yours! You should be bale to run it from the Win98 desk top - can you see your CD drive?

This blue screen - what exactly is it? what are you doing when it happens and how often? You may well have a hardware problem in whihc case changing your software will not sort it. Also - how do you know it is your CMOS battery?

first tried installing w2k over me in clean install asuming it would rewrite over me but in but i ended up with a duel boot on same hd

for cmos bat tell its me on boot up cmos bat faied reset to default thats why i cant boot from cd cos boot secence in a,c,and then something eles cant remember what but not cd drive

blue srceen is the exp error you get
it like an error report on xp, i think anyway

2 os's on same partition will make pc unstable (and could get [BSOD] blue screen of death). To upgrade you need an upgrade os disc. If it's not an upgrade disc you have to install from scratch (clean off ME 1st). Have you set 1st boot device in bios to boot from cd rom? If only floppy's working as said you can make 4 floppies to install w2k, but wipe off ME 1st. To do this make ME boot floppy, set bios 1st boot device to floppy and follow these instructions click here

BTW you will lose all data.

ok i think i will tick this now as we r going round in circles got the boot disk ad thts whti needed so thank you all again yet another problem sovled

TomJerry Am I right in assuming the four disks from svrops.com will re install win2000pro should it be needed?

setup floppies are for PCs which cannot be bootup from CD.
