    Assuming that the drive hasn't been converted to NTFS, back up your files, wipe the drive and start from scratch. MS shouldn't have ever given people this option.

    when u install it will ask u about the partitions. delete it and re-create it.

    you sure that win2k pro cd is working alright? might not be your PC's problem, but it could be a shabby copy of win2kpro.. i'd rather try getting the original cd, or at least a *working* copy
