You should prolly format and reinstall if you can. Updating Windows is often not really succesful. Just ditch the Win98 and only install W2K.

I'd rather not format because i have worse luck doing Clean upgrades as opposed to upgrades

There is no reason for your clean installs to be less reliable than your upgrades. I urge you to take allan's advice, it is a rule among most of us that upgrades are often unreliable.

Your best bet here is to make a boot floppy and FDISK your hard drive. Then install Windows 2000 from scratch by booting from the CD.
