I have a new Dell 3000 3 gig with HT and 1 gig of ram. It came with Windows XP Media with remote control installed. I want to get rid of it and put Windows 2000 on it so it will work just like my other 3 machines. I would appreciate any info on the easiest way to do this. There is nothing on the new computer that I want to keep.

If you have the full version of W2K Pro with SP4 just format the hard drive and install. Nothing to it.

Thanks for the info. I will give it a try. I think my original CD I got in 2002 so it probably is not SP4. Can I still use the original CD and then download the SP later?

Yes, just do Windows Updates. Hopefully you have broadband. The SP4 file is large.
