After you upgrade your Microsoft® SQL Server™ version 7.0 installation to Microsoft SQL Server 2000, or after you upgrade your databases from SQL Server version 6.5 to SQL Server 2000, you can keep the earlier versions on your computer.
A number of configurations are available for keeping earlier versions of SQL Server alongside SQL Server 2000. For more information, see Working with Instances and Versions of SQL Server.
When you are ready to remove an earlier version, you can use the Add/Remove Programs option in Control Panel, or you can run uninstall from the Start menu.
