Is it possible to install Win2K Pro and Win2K Server on the same partition using different root directories.

If this is possible how does it hanlde the common Program Files and Documents and Settings directories?

Would I have to install each application twice, once in each OS, to update its registry settings?

What other conflicts could this cause?

Or should I just bite the bullet, and reformat and create separate partitions?

Thanks for the help

You'll need to do this, regardless.

Yes.
