This error occurs because by default SQL 2000 does not support SQL Server authentication and supports only Windows authentication. To overcome this limitation:

- Enter SQL Enterprise Manager.
- Find your server name in the tree on the left.
- Right mouse click on the server name and select properties.
- Click the Security folder. You should now see the screen below with "Windows Only" set as the default authentication.
- Check SQL Server and Windows as the Authentication.
- Click OK.
- Click Yes to restart SQL.

Good luck!

If you want to use NT-Authorisation.
First you have to grant (databaseserver-)login for the specific User.
Then enter your database and grant access to the user.
Those two Stored procedures will do the job:

EXEC sp_grantlogin N'<yourdomain>\Administrator';
use <your_database>
EXEC sp_grantdbaccess N'<yourdomain>\Administrator', 'name_in_db';

It is connection string for you collegue:
I glad to hear ASP.NET pro.
Type instead of YOURSERVER and YOURDATABASE names of your sql server and your sql database.

If you know it and it is not help you, then try grant access to your database correctly:

osql -E -S (local)\YOURSERVER -d YOURDATABASE -Q "sp_grantdbaccess 'COMPUTERNAME\ASPNET'"
osql -E -S (local)\YOURSERVER -d YOURDATABASE -Q "sp_addrolemember 'db_owner', 'COMPUTERNAME\ASPNET'"
