    my windows 98 computer's been acting up and reinstalling windows 98 looks like the only way to fix the problem (actually it is the only way).

    this time i decided to install windows 2000 onto it as windows XP is kinda slow on it and i think windows 2000 would better suit it. (its 333mhz and 128mb ram).
    Ive never used windows 2000 before and had to download it from kazaa lite...

    the file was called windows 2000 operating system xxx-xxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx.iso.exe

    (the xxxx's were a serial number for the os).
    The file was 360mb...

    I renamed it to just have .iso instead of exe and opened with winiso, the full extraction was: 354mb, although it says size on disk: 665mb

    Do u guys think\know that this file was legite (btw it had a setup.exe file, readme, i386 folder) i just wanna make sure that its got every file needed or if there are a few that i should download before burning or something.

    Can anybody help me out?

    Well if it is an .iso don't extract it. Just burn it directly from the .iso image. In Nero click Recorder>Burn Image>Select the .iso and burn.

    As for if it's good? Burn it and try it out.
