NTFS filesystem to FAT32 access

I am using windows98 SE.I am planned to change to windows2000.Basically I havew three partitiions(C,D,E).In this D,E are already in FAT32 file system.For windows2000 I am planned to use NTFS.Once I cahnged into windows2000 will I be able to access those files in my D and E drives.
          If not what is the solution.Since I have some important dars in my D and E drives  I can not format them.Is there any other safety way?(apart from tacking backup).

you're thinking about this the wrong way:

the operating system is Windows 2000
Windows 2000 can access any drive that is NTFS, or any drive that is FAT32

it makes no difference which file system the c: drive is using

make sense?
