Well for one make sure that you've formatted the 2nd HDD (slave) & ensure
that you've created NO primary partition on this SLAVE. Just create an
extended partition & a logical drive in this extended partition in which you
will be installing the root directory of Win2000.
Next insert the WIn2000 CD-ROM & it should AutoPlay & the menu will ask you
whether you'd like to UPGRADE your existing Win98 OS to Win2000. Choose
Then choose the option "Install Windows 2000" from the menu in the
"Microsoft Windows 2000 CD" box.
You'll be guided through the installation, & when prompted where to install
Win2000, point the setup program to the first logical drive of the 2nd
Hope this is clear enough...
