Hi there, We'd like to re-install our Windows 2000 onto a relative's computer, since she is using ME and we are here already upgraded to XP. She only has dialup access, so I'd like to collect the needed updates and burn them (here) to a CD/DVD for installation on her computer after the Windows 2000 Professional is installed. May I ask for your help, please: 1) What updates should be installed to bring the Windows 2000 installation completely up-to-date? 2) Where can these updates be downloaded? Is there one site where they can all be downloaded, or are they scattered all over the microsoft.com site? 3) In what order should the updates be installed? 4) Are there any issues with an upgrade from ME to 2000? Should we save all important personal data such as photos, music, documents etc. and do a reformat and clean install? How to preserve email and its folder structure as well as browser favorites and settings?
