Am about to install WIN 2k on my system (as follows: Celeron 533, 192mb, Soundblaster live, 32mb TNT ultra, various IDE harddrives with plenty of space), basically to cure some problems with USB that I've been having. So my questions:

1) Is it going to slow the system down any?
2) Looking to run the following games:
Falcon 4
Flanker 2

et al. If these aren't going to work then I will stick with windows 98. I'm quite computer literate and am using windows 2000 professional at work (I'm an application designer), but am not familiar with any issues with it regarding games- so.... what's your opinion?

Well, I've only run Win2k on my work computer and it seems fast enough. But I'm running dual 933's with half a gig of ram . Though if you are using your home computer for games, I would not recommend Win2k but either Win98SE or Win ME. They are geared more towards gamers.
