If you wipe and replace 98 you can install a second W2K to a different DIR or drive, use WINNT2 as the DIR name, then edit the boot.ini pointing to the original W2K install. After successful reboot you can delete the second W2K or leave it for future repair purposes. Print your original boot.ini for correct syntax Ref. before starting.
