No, he wants to install W2k Server without formatting the server...   =
Probably to save his data...

Just install W2k Server from the CD, Select the current Fat32 partition =
and leave it alone.  Server will install on the Fat32 volume..  Once the =
install is complete, you can convert it to NTFS 5 if you want the =
security, reliability, etc...  Just type Convert C: /FS:NTFS from a =
command line to convert to NTFS.

Well basically you answered your own question. Just delete the Windows
folder on C: Boot from the W2K (Server) CD and install. However to save =
time
later on, when asked, you should format C: drive using NTFS. During the
setup/installation, it will see the W2K Pro installation and act
accordingly, so you shouldn't have any problems with W2K Pro. After
installation, W2K Server will become the default OS.
