Win2K Question or He's Confuuusing Meee!

Very recently, my boyfriend installed Win2k. Now I personally love Win2k because Im very nearly technologically retarded and so long as it boots up and loads photoshop, I’m a happy duck. Boy is not nearly as easily placated as I am and has posed the following question and I have NO earthly clue what he’s asking, let alone what the answer may be.

Any less technologically-challenged individuals willing to help a doper out before her head explodes in a fiery, electronically-induced KABOOM?

To help him, ask him to give his full system specifications, not just the IDE controller. Also, make sure he has Service Pack 4 installed.
