According to MS, there isn't any way to uninstall Win2k.

This is what I did to free the disk space occupied by Win2k:

1. Remove all programs installed in Win2k. (use control panel->add/remove program)
2. Remove all other data files.
3. Change Win98 as the first Boot Up choice. Set timer to 0 secs (right click "My Computer" -> Properties-> Advanced -> Startup and Recovery
4. Boot to Win98
5. Delete WinNT folder.

u can use a soft like Partition Magic 5
to delete your Win 2K partition , or Re-format it and redistribute the free space ....

u can avoid the ntloader too, if u want to restore original boot, put a boot disk in your 1,44 drive and type
A:> SYS c:  to rewrite your MBR

i had use this mean and had no problem
after that i'd just remove the files
in relation with NTloader...

i use Partition Magic 5 Pro for all my
works, install , resize, free space, format ..etc....it rocks !


i hope it's help U
