Windows 98 are in FAT, 2000 can working too with that, but it's not possible to upgrade it because a other System line then Win98

A Windows 98 to Windows 2000 upgrade is certainly possible, but there could be certain compatibility issues that prevent it from happening.
I recall that the Windows 2000 setup program produces a detailed report describing all of the possible upgrade issues. Before coming here for help, you should really check there.

(On the contrary, an in-place upgrade of Windows 9x to NT 4 is generally impossible: the setup program is not designed for that)

It is possible to upgrade to Windows 2000 (and Windows XP) from Windows 9x. I tried running the setup on Windows 98SE and Windows ME when I was trying to upgrade from Windows 1.0 to Windows XP and they ran through the entire setup fine.

Yes, it does a compatibility check before the setup copies the files. Surprisingly, even after having many components from Windows 1.0 through Windows ME, the setup was still satisfied when I tested it. It still said that some applications may have to be reinstalled to work on NT kernel.
