I have a copy and it only takes 6. You use the first to boot into the setup program and the rest come in as the program needs them.

I definietly think that the most stable Windows available is Windows XP, though, Windows 2000 did deliver some good stability.

But, Windows XP is a built up version of 2000. Thats where they started, so the stability should be the same/better and more up to date.

I also agree NTFS is by far the best standard.

I agree completely with that. If you had to choose between two, definitely Win2K and WinXP Pro. If I had to choose between the two, WinXP Pro. But with me, always low GUI settings!
