I currently triple boot DOS6.22/Win98/Win2000 Beta.  I want to continue the triple boot with the Final Release version of Win2000.  Can I do this with the Upgrade version, or must I purchase the Full Version of Win2000?
Thank you.

Will work with upgrade or final.  Only difference with the upgrade is that it will check to see if you are a licensed owner of NT 4.0.

Technically, you can use the upgrade version in dual\triple boot.

Legally, the version\competitive upgrade requires you to discontinue use of the product you are upgrading from. If you do not have any other OS to spare, Windows 98 in your configuration would legally have to go. Better thing to do would be to buy a cheap copy of NT4, now that they are going at wholesale prices due to the release of 2K, then buy the Win2K upgrade. OR, simply purchase the full version of 2K.
