2000 probably uses ntfs, not vfat. So write support to windows from linux
might be dangerous, but see src/linux/Documentation/filesystems/ntfs.txt
assuming the kernel source is installed somewhere.
If you want a more recent distro, several magazines have dvds included.
Also irc gives faster answers than USENET (oops, did I shout?).
