Hi,
if from scratch, then the HDD should have enough space, if you are upgrading from a machine that already has Win98 or Win95, then I would recommend that you ensure you have at least 2 gig of free space just to be on the safe side.
when i was upgrading from win98, i had 4 gig of free space, no problem there.

You're installing a program on a w2k Pro machine? Not installing w2k Pro itself?

Are disk quotas enabled? They can only be enabled on NTFS. To check, right-click the drive in question, select properties, click the quota tab (far-right) & view/reset the options. You may need to contact your Admin to re-configure your quota limits.

If you don't see the quota tab, you're not using NTFS, thus, not affected by quotas.

Last, is the drive you're intalling to a network share? Perhaps your admin has enabled quotas (using Netware)?
