You can't have separate Windows boot systems installed for XP and 2K.  You=
must use the XP variety.  If you allow 2K to wipe out the XP files, you=20
will not be able to start XP.  Both 2K and XP will be accessed through the=
XP boot menu, regardless of whether you get to it from lilo or grub, or=20
directly from bootstrap.
