    Office XP, 2K and 97 on same computer (97 SR2, XP and 2K)

    I have two physical hard drives. I have successfully installed and used Office 2K and Office 97 on the same hard drive for over a year now. They don't interfere with each other, and I don't get errors. I decided to install XP on a separate physical drive, and I made sure to select that drive when I installed the program. Ugh. Ick. Ptewee. My system crashes constantly, and I am beleagured with Visual Basic errors. The computer ran like a slug... not at all really. I finally gave up and reinstalled my previous disk image and got rid of XP. But, I need to learn it and use it. I can't get rid of the other versions. I have to be able to do projects in all 3 versions. Any suggestions for installing XP successfully, while keeping 2K and 97??0.
