Problems setting up dual booting of Windows Me and Win2k

I have Windows Me running. I plan to dual boot with a new install of Win2k. I run Win2k setup and choose new install; I select the option to allow me to choose the partition at install time; the system reboots and I get 'Inaccessable_Boot_Device' bluescreen, as setup tries to startup Win2k. All of the drives are standard IDE formatted at FAT32, so I don't think that I need a special driver. Also there is no floppy drive in the system. I have a LS-120.
