Yes. But the owner had "formatted" the drive ahead of the Windows 2000 install. They were not sure hwo they had done this, but I'd just start over. Remove all partitions, and use the Win2k CD to do the clean install.

Be sure your BIOS is uptodate and default values to avoid issues. Be sure you use a factory Windows 2000 CD since I've seen bad installs from customized CDs.
