New installation? From clean install , second os or upgrade? If you did a clean install or second OS, I don't think you will have a problem, as long as your computer has the required system config. For upgrade, there might be some program that keep Win 2000 from installing. So I'd say clear your hard drive of any sort of trash, literally clean it, and then fresh install Win2000, it will work.

Try going to BIOS setup screen, find the WAKE ON LAN feature and diable it. Also disable POWER MANAGEMENT. When you are all installed you can re-enable these things again. Is this an upgrade install or clean install? Is this a new computer? What processor are you running? Anyway check and experiment with settings in BIOS. Also make sure you do not have a defective installation disk and do not have the unit plugged into any network connection including DSL or Cable.

I've had that problem and I had to flash the bios on my motherboard.
