VI. Appendixes > A. Installing Windows 2000 Professional

Appendix A. Installing Windows 2000 Professional

If you’re on a corporate network, someone else probably handles Windows 2000 installations; you can skip this appendix (and the delightful experience of in- stalling a new operating system). And if you’ve just bought a new computer with Windows 2000 computer preinstalled, you’re similarly excused from reading the following pages.

But if you’re upgrading your machine from an earlier version of Windows, read on to determine whether your computer is up to the Windows 2000 challenge and how to plan your installation. (And if you’re reinstalling Windows 2000, skip straight to "Prepping Your System" on Section A.2.4.)
