As per the email this morning:

          Whoops! Windows 2000 name is already owned.


Don't bet on the name Windows 2000 yet. The name was trademarked
two-and-a-half years ago by Robert Kerstein, the former cellular CFO of
McCaw Cellular Corporation, on behalf of his En*pedia reference web

Have to go now. I need to trademark the name Windows 2001, 2002, etc.

All I can comment on this is, two things might happen:

a) Robert Kerstein becomes richer by a few millions.
b) Microsoft decides to stick with the NT5 name.

PS: New name suggestions welcome!


1. LILO: dual Windows2000/Windows2000 ?

I need to have a dual-boot machine, where I can maintain two different
environments.  On one hard drive I will boot into my business
environment.  And then another environment for home/entertainment use
that the kids can use without endangering my work stuff.  I have two
hard drives, and I want to set up each one with its own Windows 2000

I don't know how to properly configure a boot-loader to make it
possible to choose the environment at boot time.

Can/should I use LILO to do this?  If so, what do I do?  If not, what
should I use?
