outlook 98 installed on win2k

By netbroker ·
I installed outlook 98 on a win2k pro machine and upon reboot it said I could not logon as my default logon to the PC, said my domain was missing,
I am cable user, and can't boot the machine using any login, bc of a missing domain, is therea workaround?
can I get the PC to boot win2k somehow to get to the network setting or control panel to remove Outlook or reset the domain?

I do have a dual boot system with w98 on an adjacent drive that will allow me to view the contents on Win2k.any help would be appreciated.

This is a known problem with Outlook98 and Windows2000 (try searching on Microsoft's knowledgebase for the actual article). What happens is when Outlook is installed it overwrites security files that Win2k needs to allow log ins. There is a way tofix the problem using Safe Mode Command prompt but it is a long, involved, and annoying procedure. "Fixing" the problem tends to lead to other problems as well. The easiest way to fix this is to get all the important data off of the system and nuke the Win2k system. Starting over is the only way to be sure that no other problems will pop up.
