win9x vs win2k

By cerulean27 ·
We need to begin migrating from a win9x environment to win2k. Can anyone suggest resources to help us learn about the differences between the two and/or ease our transition?

Our network environment includes both netware servers and nt servers, and most clients login to both. We will maintain the 9x computers until the end of their life, but new computers will have win2k.

Thanks in advance.

Hi again,

Sorry, but I also tried this link :-

http://www.microsoft.com/win2k

It is no longer there, however it has some veruy handy links on Win2k migration.

This should certainly get you started in the right direction.

Regards,

Andy

win2k is specially designed for business where pc's are on the network. win2k uses ntfs partition for your hdd, meaning, it is neither fat16 or fat32 file system. some old software cannot run in win2k environment. it has no dos interface, unlike in win9x, in which you can still shift to dos mode and run msdos programs. this is all what i know, hope it will help you.
