RE: Can Windows 2000 and Windows XP co-exist on the s- ame machine

Well, this recommendation is correct but it is quite possible to have NT4,
w2k and XP on one partition without any 3rd party utility (or am I seeing
ghosts on my drives? :). I believe it is also possible to install NT4 after
w2k and maybe XP, there are updated winnt32.exe on SP4+ CDs for this
purpose.

Anyway, it is better to follow Mark’s recommendation (and maybe update NT4
to the latest SP before w2k install).

Actually I think that in general you want to install in order of release
(nt4->W2K->XP) and you really, really want to have a different partition
for
each OS. Be very careful with large disks and NT4 as it has ‘issues’. I
recently did this to a test system, in order to have nt4/w2k/xp available
and went through absolute hell on the nt4 install. W2k and XP were
strictly
no problem.

Sure.
I have NT4, 2000 and XP all on the same box, but each in it’s own
partition.
I would install 2000 before installing XP. -bill
