If you install Win98/ME/2000 using FAT32 you are limited to 32 Gb per partition, and that's probably the problem. Make several FAT32 partitions if you plan to install Win98/ME/2000 or use NTFS with Win2000 for one 60 Gb partition.

Ater all these times you've tried to install things on your HDD it can be good idea to clean it properly with Disk Editor, because each installation leaves trash in boot sector.

Another thing. Making the whole 60 Gb one partition, well that's not actually good idea.

For the conclusion : Clean up your MBR with DiskEditor, then run Win2000 installation from CDROM and reconfigure your HDD with (30x2) for FAT32/NTFS or go for all 60Gb with NTFS.

Good luck
