Curt, as XP can have its bells & whistles shut
down to perform as 2K can, your preference must
be security related.  Would you be spcefic, or
should I just read every advisory again?  This
perplexes me as M$ at least eventually patch XP
while 2K is entering its next life.

You don't have to be security oriented to not want XP in the workplace.
There are plenty of other reasons. Install XP to someplace other than C: and
the default directory name, delete boot.ini then try and recover using the
Cd if you want to experience but one of them.. (you'll have to try the same
thing with W2K to understand the full meaning of what I'm describing)
