Let me know if this works AFTER you have reformatted your HDD and tried to
install your upgrade version of your OS.

BTW, I have NT 4.0 Workstation (full version) still in its shrink wrap.
E-mail me privately with your best offer.

Most upgrades now are complete versions.  you are just getting a price
break as a registered user.  The exception is a software patch that you
download from a site.  But I just recently bought a complete new version of
a piece of software and still had to download a patch from their site... so
staying away from an upgrade doesn't solve that problem.
