Revert to Win2KPro from Win2K Server

Ricardo

I have an older computer that was once used as a file
server running Win2K Server. I would like to continue to
use the computer as a workstation but install Win2K Pro so
I can use Norton Anitvirus. NAV does not work on Win2K
Server.

You'll need to format and re-install (or at least do a clean install). You
can't go from a Server to a workstation, and vice versa

Thank you for your response. I found that by creating boot
disks from the Win2K Pro CD I could then install Win2K Pro
over the Win2K Server. It appears to be working fine. It
does erase everything in the WinNT and My Documents
directories however.
Thanks again.
