    I was given a 120 day eval copy of win2000 and have been using it. I recently bought the full copy. Is there a way to put the full copy's cd-key into my existing set-up so that it doesn't expire and I don't have to start all over?

    Thanks!

    I believe the method is to install windows over itself; it shouldn't nuke your settings and what not. The readme files that came with your eval version should detail the upgrade path.

    John,

    Like Shayne mentioned above, you should be able to install Win 2K over itself. I would recommend a fresh install, however.
