Did you try using the Setup manager from W2K cd
\support\tools\deploy

Also the parameters have to be specified in W2K,the Target Path WINNT32 [/S[:sourcepath]

The bios has to be set to boot from the A:\drive,but still use the CD for full unattended install

Create a bootable floppy disk with cdrom support. Include your answer file in this bootdisk. From command prompt, go to your cd drive. from <drive>i386\ folder, execute the ff: winnt /u:"answer file" /s:"source path where the Windows 2000 installation files can be found"

hope this helps.
