My wife has an Acer Travelmate 202 notebook, 650 MHz Celeron, ATI Rage Mobility graphics (see link below for full specs). I just upgraded it to 320 MB RAM.

Unfortunately, it came with WinMe installed. Since it is a preconfigured notebook, there haven't been any catastrophic failures, but the networking is screwed. It will not connect to the W2K systems on my home network, so there is no printer or file sharing with the notebook.

Is there any reason NOT to install W2K on this thing? Any known incompatibilities or driver issues? It's only got a 4.7 GB hard drive, so I might get a 10 GB drive and start fresh with W2K, in which case I wouldn't lose anything on the original.
