I'm sorta confused now because if he has Win98 on the drive now, and he
can't upgrade Win98 to W2KS, then exactly what data is he trying to save?
Maybe the backing up of files is throwing me, because that could mean 98 or
W2K Pro. <shrug>  However, this is not to say you're wrong, it's that I'm
confused! :-O

If it's Win98 and he thinks he might want to rollback, then wouldn't making
an image of the win98 drive be in order, just in case? (Of course BEFORE he
does all of this!) :-)
