The usage of O/S between Windows 2000 a

By wilson ·
1)Can a normal PC support different kind of O/s? For example, I would like to install windows 2000 with Linux or Windows 98, Windows 2000 and Linux together?
2)For the moment, how many software outside the market can support Windows 2000? I have try a few software but Windows 2000 do not accept the installation because the software cannot accept the O/S which contains 128 bit. Please give me opinion.

Hi!

1) YES! Windows 2000/98/95/NT can be installed together with Linux, but you should install them in diffrent partitions.

2) Well you just have to wait for an updated program version then, but most 32 bit programs should work.

1)Yes,you can create what is called a dual boot of two operating systems.Refer Microsoft Technet web site to get info on dual booting.
2)You will have to refer to the Microsoft site to get software compatibility list on WIN2000,Do not understand the second part of your question in that the 128 is a security encryption.You may be having a problem with 16bit and 32 bit applications being compatible. hope this helps

duel booting is the way to go with 2 versions of windows (nt & 95/98). Linux can be added to that group for a triple boot. try third party software partition magic or system commander to split your hard drive into different partitions and install a boot manager for multiple o/s's. with linux, there is now one new option - install linux from windows. it can be cone now. check out www.winlinux.com or www.dragonlinux.com for more info on that. Mandrake linux also offers a version of linux that is run on a windows partition.

To dual boot 95/98 and NT/2000 is pretty easy, just install them, but remember NT doesn't support Fat32. To add linux to the mix read the howtos located at www.linuxberg.com they are very informative
