    okay, here's my situation. i agreed to sell my old pentium 3, 550 quantex to a friend of mine for a couple of dollars (which i REALLY need right now) and i told him i'd clear the hard drive, fresh install windows 2000 and let him have it.

    now, i wasn't paying terribly close attention to what i was doing (too much television) but i think i installed 2000 on the D: partition of the drive. so after install, i restarted, and two OS's came up, the old 98 and the new 2000. i started the 2000, and when i got it up and running, i decided to format the c: drive, figuring i could once again restart from the d: drive. was i ever wrong. obviously i'm a moron, because i screwed this up pretty good. now when i try to boot up i get a message that says "nldtm cannot be found, press any key to restart." i tried to reboot from the 2000 disk, and nothing happens either. i can get into bios but i can't seem to make anything happen...i'm an idiot who needs help. anyone with any advice to get me out of this predicament?

    if you would, please send your responses to adamnldt@yahoo.com, so i make sure i get them. thanks in advance for any help.

    Probably starting again will be the quickest way .

    Delpart.exe From NT 3.51, this utility can delete extended NTFS,
    Lilo, and just about any other type of partition .
    DELPART is a DOS based utility that will remove NTFS partitions from
    hard drives. FDISK is unable to remove some types of NTFS partitions.
    DELPART can wipe clean a hard drive, then you can use FDISK to create
    partitions normally.

    When creating a dual boot system you need to have Win98 installed on it's partition first. Install win2k after on it's partition/drive. This allows Win2k to create a dual boot.ini file giving you a choice when booting up
