Two versions of Windows 2000 on one machine (same partition)

Got a server which we're moving to new hardware. Old server had a dual
boot (both of which were windows 2000). One windows was installed in c:
\winnt and the second in c:\winntpxe.

I've got the primary installed now. Do I just install again with
windows 2000 disk and select new install directory?

Also, second install (as you can see from name) acts as a DHCP/GHOST
pxe server. With the original server, we could boot other machines
across the network from this. The client machine then gave an option
to select a ghost session to choose (I think this is in DHCP setup
somewhere).

This then tied up with whatever ghost session was set to run on the
windows 2000 server. I can set the ghost sessions up easy enough but
dont know how to add the sessions that DHCP picks up?

I doubt it as only one operating system from one partition can be run at
a time.

If I were you, I'd make sure the new hardware is big enough to
virutalise the 2000 operating system. VMware has tools to take an image
of a running OS and create a virtual machine(s). The whole lot should
transfer over nicely.

Then I'd look at dumping the old unsupported OS.

It's advisable to install each copy of Windows on it's own partition

but if you *insist* on using the same partition

then yes

simply specify the directory of your choice for the 2nd installation- Hide quoted text -

Legacy system which needs to be set up the same as before. No idea why
my predecessor used the same partition.

philo, thou nit. Thou art a hunch-backed poltroon, a cheese-filled
drawler, an unwholesome puppy-headed monster, a manic sad wrack, soft

If it was working the way it was then just set it up the same way I guess

Bunch of ****ing know-nothing maroons. It's a pre-boot environment.

Dumbfuck cuntards, the lot of you.

I was not ignoring you

I always assume the worst.
I probably just did not see your post

I was out of town for several days

Anyway, my $120 laser printer
though a good price was not even the cheapest

Samsung had one at half that price

Yeah, the ones with the 1,000 page starter cart...
anyway it works great

and I especialy like the newtork printing capabilites

IT was easier to set up from Linux

The drivers were built-in plus the dns numbers were
assigned properly the first time

a few of the Windows machines in the house auto-detected
the DNS numbers wrong

(but it took all of two seconds to correct)

Well, that's great - I'm happy for you, and that cartridge won't
last you 8 years like MiNE did (because I print 3 pages once a
month if that), but it should last a good while!

Cheers.

(Anything new on your site? I haven't visited for a long
while...)

Don't usually print more than a couple of pages a day
so hopefully it will last a while

Have not updated the website in a few years.

Things have gotten pretty busy at work and I don't have as
much free time as I used to

There's nothing worse than having nothing to do... But I don't
think you've ever had that problem...
and my wife got a grant that will be keeping her busy and
getting paid for the next 12 months

she got an "artist in residence" grant

and is working on a portrait project!

That's fantastic - my congratulations. I really DID think her
paintings were very good! She deserves it.
FWIW: Her paycheck is twice what mine is

I know the feeling. Well, not really, having never been
married... but you know what I mean...
Of course , she gets paid once a month and I get paid by
the week

LOL

but in the world of artists getting grants,
she got a pretty good one!

No kidding!

Best regards.
