    2000 probably uses ntfs, not vfat. So write support to windows from linux
    might be dangerous, but see src/linux/Documentation/filesystems/ntfs.txt

    If you want a more recent distro, several magazines have dvds included.
    Also irc gives faster answers than USENET (oops, did I shout?).
