    win2000 --> NT4

    hey,

    i just got an new Dell Inspiron 8000 which came loaded with win2000. i need to take 2000 off and install NT4. before attempting this i wanted to find out what drivers i will be needing. the downloads section of the dell website is "down or being updated" (??). does anyone else know of a site where i can find information/download these drivers?

    more generally, can anyone reccomend any good tutorials or sites dealing with the instalation of op. systems?

    thanks.

    For a good driver site, check out http://www.driverguide.com
    If it asks you for a password, the username is "drivers" and pass is "all"

    just in case anyone is interested, i wanted to let people know that in my quest to find drivers that will work with a Dell Inspiron 8000 and NT4, i did not have much success. I was able to find a network driver only. The holy grail of my search was a video driver that would work with and NVIDIA GeForce2 Go video card and NT4. I searched everywhere and could not find this thing.

    I wanted to post this only because in my quest I saw dozens of postings for things that people were looking for with very few replies and very few follow ups. If anyone needs a network driver for an Inspiron 8000 and NT4, let me know.

    I have since removed NT4 and loaded win2k server.
