Hi Oscar. Hmmm... I would doubt it very much. 2000 is based on NT so it would be more similar to XP. I would suggest you look up a guide that specifically discusses installing 2000 and linux.

If you need a GUI partitioning program check out Paragon Partition Manager -- it works great.

sausagejohnson, will your tips work with Mandrake 10.1 Official or a different procedure is needed? I want Win98 on a 5GB partition. Mandrake is on 8GB. Thanks.

The flavour of Linux really shouldn't matter. The principle should be the same. I used the Mandrake Community version the test release just before the final came out. But again, that shouldn't matter. Still, if you have a spare drive, clone it as a backup and give it a try.
