I don't think there are white papers but they have migration guides. All info microsoft has is on their site www.microsoft.com/win2k . There is a utility that you will need to run to test if your computer is compatible with win2k.
Of course there are also books you can buy for doing the migration. You might just be better off reading postings from people that have already done the migration. Some site are as follows:
www.winntmag.com, www.techrepublic.com,
www.brainbuzz.com, www.deja.com and
www.about.com

I recently took the MS 1560 course, a 5-day course in studying upgrading NT4 to Win2K, and I have to say that the differences are astounding! Forests, trees, domains, dynamic DNS, Master catalogs, Schemas, Active Directory, DHCP, RRAS, Policies, Attributes...etc. All has changed. All is new. Now, I already was familiar with Novell's NDS, so the Active Directory was no big deal (and I think it's lacking), but I must tell you that upgrading an NT4 network to Win2K IS a giant deal! I would not rely on white papers and some other familiarity techniques, because surely you will fail. I recommend taking a course!

The special thing you need do is PLAN, and plan some more. As -Q stated, AD is more then an upgrade to NT, it is a whole new thinking.
If you have a small single domain, less planning is required, but if you have multiple domains, mixed environments, read, research, plan and design. Definately run a small pilot, varify all applications and services will run on Win2K.
