I recently converted from Win98SE to Windows 2000 Pro. Did a clean install meaning I reformatted and then installed only Win2k -- then reinstalled all my software. I find it infinitely more stable than my Win98SE system, although am not sure if it's the difference in operating systems or the fact that everything was reinstalled from scratch. However, I do lik Win2k better for its speed, stability and management features. The NTFS is much faster than the Fat32 file system of Win98SE. If you do migrate to Win 2000 be sure all your drivers are the latest. The fact that you will have no browser software on the new system will help. Browsers (some are worset than others, particularly Netscape 6 and up) are the worst memory hogs around, and they love to leave pieces of themselves resident in memory. Good luck. J.
