Microsoft Projecting

So, I'm working on my software dev plan for releasing our
software. I am using Microsoft Project 4.0 on an extremely
complicated project scheduler with a couple hundred activities
and sub-activities spread out over about 9 months. Project 4.0
uses '00 to represent dates on their calendar which isn't a problem
as most of the interfaces seem to be working correctly. However, putting
a couple of milestones in there, when I switch from the Gantt chart
to the PERT chart, it shows some of the milestones in red even they
theoretically are in the future. Between this stupid y2k problem and
getting GDI resource problems (because I am forced to know that Project
4.0 is a lame ass 16-bit program that doesn't allocate memory correctly)
I now have to upgrade to Project98. The list the upgrade as $199 and
full version as $499 on their site. Can anyone get me the dicsounted
version? I think I paid $35 for the original software and I am convinced
that the upgrade doesn't give me $100-something worth of new features
that I will use.
