OT : RE: Debian on Windows 2k
:-) from experience i can say that in the end win2k is as bad or as good as
you think winnt is. Especially at the lower level (drivers etc.) layer
things go wrong very badly from time to time. Some Antivirus software and
Personal Firewalls have the habit of crashing you system once in a while.
There is also an issue with explorer wich can lock up your machine when some
read/write operation is hung up.
I do howevere admit that for a workstation win2k is the better choice vs NT,
though it's not as solid as a Linux based workstation :-)

Yes, you should have a separate partition for Debian. But, with the low cost
of drives it is more economic to install another drive rather than waste
your time dividing up the one you have. Maybe you already have a smaller
drive laying about (2GB is nice) that has nothing to do anyway.
Yes, Debian can read Win2k formatted NTFS partitions just fine.
WinNT crashes sometimes. Win2k doesn't. Don't go back to NT.
