You don\\\'t need to install 95 or 98 if you already have a Windows 200 disc (and lisence key). However, if the 98 and 2000 discs are upgrade only (do those even exist?) then let us know so as to give the right instructions.
All you need to do is insert the Windows 2000 disc into the cd-rom drive and start the computer. (You may need to change the boot device order through the bios, let us know if you don\\\'t know how)
When/if you are prompted, press any key to boot from the CD. (if you don\\\'t sse this prompt and get an \\\"Operating System Not found\\\" or other error, let us know)
The setup program will start and spend a minute or two loading drivers and such.
Follow the on screen instructions and prompts to install a fresh copy of Windows. When prompted, press \\\"c\\\" to create a partition and leave the size of the drive at the default (unless you want more than one logical drive, but I\\\'m guessing not).
Format the new drive.
The setup program will then copy the necessary file to the hard drive and then restart. Wait for Windows to load and follow the instructions to complete the installation.
The setup program will give you prompts furing the process that correlate to what I\\\'ve discussed, so don\\\'t worry if you\\\'re a little lost after reading this.
