Install 2K Pro over XP Home
Posted on 2002-05-28
A few months ago, I got She Who Must Be Obeyed a new box with XP Home on it. All was fine for a few months when she barely used it. Now that she's started using it heavily, she get's frequent lockups (not just one app, the whole box). I traced it to a intermittently failing NIC, but the damage has been done - she's decided she wants the OS I use on my main box (Win 2K Pro) because:
1) My box never locks
2) XP should have said the NIC was bad instead of just locking
3) XP 'feels' goofy
So, being ever attentive to her demands, yet being a lazy SOB, I'd like to install 2K on top of XP so as to avoid re-installing the three to seven zillion little things she installed.
Suggestions, admonitions, warnings, and gibes of any sort are welcome.
Oh, "No, it can't be done" is a perfectly acceptable answer, although "Yes, it can if you bay thrice at a full moon" might be preferred.
