Chapter 34. OS Mix and Match > Windows 2000 Professional and Windows NT

Windows 2000 Professional and Windows NT

Installing both Windows NT and Windows 2000 on the same system is also something you might want to do. This configuration is popular for many people already running Windows NT 4.0 who want to try Windows 2000 before completely canning their previous installation. This is a worthwhile pursuit and can be obtained with a little care and planning.

If you already have Windows NT 4.0 installed, you are probably using either the FAT16 file system or NTFS. Looking at Table 34.1, you can see that Windows 2000 supports both of the file systems supported by Windows NT 4.0. When installing Windows 2000 Professional, you simply select a new installation, as opposed to an upgrade, and the installer will handle the rest. As with the previous configuration, Windows 2000 will save your Windows NT 4.0 installation and give you the choice of selecting it at boot time.
