There is no upgrade path from Windows ME to Windows 2000. You would have to reformat the hard drive to remove ME before you install Windows 2000 from scratch.

Windows 98 uses an older technology based on DOS, Windows 2000 is based on the NT Kernel. Sometimes Windows NT OS's don't work right with old dos files.With a clean install, you get a fresh start. With an upgrade, problems with applications or the OS may follow you into the new load.Install off of your Windows 2000 CD and then have Windows search for your Win 98 CD when it checks for valid upgrade path.

What are the differences between Windows 95 and Windows 2000?

Well, the huge difference between Windows 95 and Windows 2000 is that since Windows 95 is five years older than Windows 2000 Windows 95 is on the lower end of the scale of revolutionary technology. Another big thing is the startup sound's origins of the two OSes. Windows 95s startup sound was made (ironically) by someone on a MAC, while Windows 2000s was made on a cheap piano.... Windows 95 was missing a lot of tools used on Windows 2000, and one huge one was USB support. See, Windows 95 needs an add-on for it to support USB, while Windows 2000 came with support standard. But then again, did USB even exist in 1995? Another big fact is that the two OSes are targeted at different parts of life: 95 is targeted for educational and home use while Windows 2000 is a "Professional" (buisiness-targeted) OS. But Microsoft also created a (unstable) home version of 2000 dubbed Millennium Edition. (Millennium Edition is commonly known as ME)
