Best Answer

Yes, if installed on an AMD64 / EM64T compatible processor, Windows 2000 will not be able to take advantage of the additional addressing capabilities, however. There is also a 64-bit version of Windows 2000 available only for Itanium chips.

What is one reason to use a clean install rather than an upgrade when migrating from Windows 98 to windows 2000?

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.
