Windows 2000

Windows 2000 come loaded on my new computer and a "recovery disk"?

Just what is on the recovery disk and how do I use it.

I understand that the pre-loaded operating system cannot be used on another computer.

Well most recover disks are compressed images of the original installation on that machine. If you use it it will reformat the drive and put that image back onto the drive so the machine is back to it original state. You should not need to use it unless you are having problems that cannot be resolved.

In other words if you use it it will wipe everything off the disk and put the system back to the way the vendor had originally set it up.
