I have 2 questions here. Firstly can I use a Windows 2000 Professional Full CD (not the upgrade CD) to upgrade Windows 98 to Windows 2000? Secondly do DELL Windows 2000 CD have the Setup files on it or do they use norton ghost or some other program like that?

1) Yes but you may have a problem with some of the drivers as I found out recently :-((( Check to see if all your devices are compatile with 2000

2) IIRC Dell 2000 CDs are usually machine specific. They will hve the setup files but they are arranged in such a way that makes it a tad difficult to load ;-))

ps...you will be asked if you wish to dual boot as well. This may be worth doing in case your drivers are causing a problem.
