Want to Install W2K XP into a Separate Partition

    I've got a Dell 8200 W2K Pro. Using partition magic I created a boot magic
    partiton and ntfs partition for W2K Pro XP.
    The W2K Pro XP CDs came from Dell. Before replacing W2K Pro w/ XP I want to
    install XP into a separate partition,
    but when I boot to the xp partition w/ the xp upgrade cd it won't boot and
    load xp. How can I install xp w/o
    first installing w2k pro then upgrading to xp pro?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Don't use Partition Magic to create the partitions, just create them
    during the install process.
