I have installed Windows 2000 and my modem doesn't work because the drivers aren't supported in Windows 2000. What modem is supported in Windows 2000 and is not expensive to buy.
try to update the drivers by checking drivershq.com or buy a modem like dynalink, best or tricom. cheap and reliable.
You just have to use the old drivers,those you have used with windows,win me is compatible with the old drivers for win98.
