I installed an Aopen modem on a Win2k machine. Everything worked fine, but now when I try to connect to the Internet. Erro 679 pops in telling me that the device is not on MS Hardware Compitablity List. Is there any way, I can install devices and ignore HCL compliance? Thanks...

Try reinstalling it as a generic Hayes-compatible modem. Most (all that I know of) modems understand the basic AT commands, and this may be enough to make it work. If it's a Winmodem, which use custom software running on the CPU to operate, this won't work, but it's worth a shot...

If you haven't done so already look for the Windows 2000 driver from the vendor for your modem. Check the following site for your modem:

http://www.aopenusa.com/tech/download/modem/default.htm

The 3rd party vendor drivers will generally run fine if you download the correct Windows 2000 driver. The HCL is a list of hardware devices that Microsoft has tested and will support. If it isn't on the HCL Microsoft leaves it up to the vendor to support. The Windows 2000 drivers for Aopen are on the web site above.
