I have an old Toshiba Tecra 8000, and I was wondering if it would be a good idea to upgrade from windows 98 to 2000. What do you think?

Usually newer versions of windows run better on older systems.

Those two OS's were designed completely different. Are there Win2k specific drivers available? If you don't have any experience with Win2k I suggest just sticking with 98.

from a networking standpoint 2000 is better (better TCP/IP)
but i wouldn't recommend 2000 on that, because it only has 128MB of ram. while it meets the requirements for it, doing much at all would cause it to hit the pagefile a lot.
