Okay so here's the scoop. If you don't know I posted
already yesterday detailing my issue upgrading from
Windows 98 to Windows 2000. Following some advice that I
got, instead of uprading to 2000 from 98 (which i could
not do because of limited disk space on the drive that 98
was installed to) I did a clean install of Windows 2000 to
the drive with more free space. Every time I start the
computer now I am prompted to pick which OS I want to
use. I do not think this is a big problem and if possible
I think I may want to leave 98 on the computer because
there are games that my daughter lkes to play that do not
work with 2000. My problem is that now that I have
installed 2000 I can still see many of the programs I had
previously installed on 98 but I cannot use them. Nothing
except for one program I have installed so far appears in
add/remove programs. How can I make 2000 see these
programs that are already installed under 98? Thanks for
reading and taking the time to help me out.

You can't, you'll need to reinstall them.
