How to burn three hours with Windows 2000

Tried and failed to install Windows 2000 Pro on a 5 year old PIII today. It took me three hours (possibly more) to come to the conclusion that I was wasting my time. Installed the OS, it boots. Hangs on startup. Works when you go into VGA mode. OK, must be graphics drivers I thought. Did that. same problem. Added SP4 – BSOD and INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE. Decided to stop wasting my minutes and went for XP again instead. I’d love to ditch Windows altogether and put Linux on there, problem is we need to be able to play Windows games as it’s for Matt.
