Consider yourself lucky :-)

My NT4 -> W2K upgrade resulted in 

	scanner    - dead
	sound card - dead
	tape drive - dead

My wife's Win98 -> W2K upgrade (on a much newer box) resulted in 

	built-in sound - dead
	ATI video card - "unsupported beta" driver only

Not impressive ...

(In spite of that, W2K has been more stable than NT4, but certainly
 not *perfectly* crash-free; there are still Blue Screens ...)
