Cool as a CUCUMBAR ! ! !
i have win 98 on 1 partition & w2k on other ...

bt now i wish 2 keep only 1 ie w2k or win xp ...

my data is on other partition ... i have 3 partitions ...

how 2 install w2k or win xp ??? ie removing win 98 entirely ...


ur data is in the third partition ?
boot from ur winxp cd
format the primary partition and install winxp on that
after ur done and u boot into ur os format the second drive with the other windows

all ur data will be safe since its on the third partition

if after all this its giving u a dual boot option ( which it shouldnt )
find ur boot.ini file in c:\ ( root drive )
and open it in notepad
and make sure it reads like this

[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

have fun

Use nortonGhost . take an image of xp or 2k and replace your 98 partition with that ghost image.
