I think there's four dot hack series on this site: roots, sign, legend of the twilight, and quantum.

sign and legend of the twilight bracelet take place before G.U.

Quantum takes place ~3 years later, it's an entirely different story though there are a few returning characters from G.U.

.hack//roots takes place during G.U.

That is to say, in the first 20 minutes of G.U., you see Haseo start off as a newbie, it skips 6 months and then he's a total asshole. Roots tells the story of those 6 months and why he becomes an asshole. So it doesn't as much spoil G.U. as it is a missing part of G.U.

----

.hack//sign btw was the first story released in the .hack// series.

From anime and games only the timeline is

//sign
first 4 games (right after sign) and .hack//liminality which is an OVA that came with the games.
//legend of the twilight bracelet (~4 years after first for games)
//roots (during G.U.)
//G.U. games
//Quantum (~3 years after G.U.)
//Link (PSP game, not sure where it fits in)
//Sekai no Mukou Ni (Movie, about 7 years after G.U., original story)

It's been years, but I don't think they did.

No, they definitely do not. In a lot of ways, they're almost entirely unrelated.

it's been awhile for me since I've had anything to do with dot hack, but as far as I remembered they didn't. each series was different same goes for the games. however spoilers spoils games, don't know the times walk throughs and searching for getting past that "stuck point" really crushed the surprise waiting for me. the comics however will spoil for both game and cartoon, if memory serves me right. I did a quick search and from what I can tell the creator/s were cool about keeping all stories separate so a person can watch, read or play any of dot hack and they wouldn't get spoilers or find them trapped in a repeat of same old song and dance reboots. hope this helps. check out wiki for further details about dot hack if needed. caution there are usually spoilers on that site.
