    Do you have all the hardware drivers for windows 2000 to run on your system?
    Best to search them out first and have them on a CD ready to install.

    No, there are no goodies, Windows 2000 is a serious operating system.

    Windows 2000 can easily scare the blue hell out of you. Yes, you can use Windows Update, you have a "valid" version after all. XP is the only one I know of where you need special tools to be able to download service packs.

    Win2k is intended mainly as a business OS. You're not going to get any "goodies" other than the standard Microsoft games, like Solitaire...

    No you can't. It's all different for win2k. Do an inventory of all your hardware, check the actual chip numbers. Don't just trust some program, then look up those numbers on google and get the latest win2k drivers for them all. If you have realtek network adaptors you may be ok for networking till you get to update but your sound and video are gonna be a mess if they work at all. Any video capture or tuner cards, any peripheral devices at all will need new drivers. If you're on an HP or dell PC, some stuff may not work at all. Find out before you start.
