      What I do is make a mmc console on my workstation.
      add the event viewer snap in several times, each time selecting another server to monitor. What you end up with is a mmc console with a all of your servers event viewers in one neat package

      I don’t have a Win2000 box but in NT4.0 resource kit exist dumpel.exe which can export events to a formated text file.
      If you want to export all events for PC1 you can use it as follow:
      dumpel.exe -f reportsPC1\PC1security.txt -s \\PC1 -l security-t -d 7
      dumpel.exe -f reportsPC1\PC1application.txt -s \\PC1 -l application -t -d 7
      dumpel.exe -f reportsPC1\PC1system.txt -s \\PC1 -l system -t -d 7
      Also you can export only events you wish, you can enstablish a period of days and you have many other options here.
      You can put this commands in a batch file and schedule it to run periodicaly.
      Once you have these text files you can import/link them in access or excel and with some filters or queries you can create specific reports as you need for all Servers.
      In final all you have to do is to run a queries and see the results.

      Try using EventArchiver. it is an app the was written just for that purpose, it can also be configured so that it automatically archives everytime a log file reaches it maximum allowable size.
