And also pretty old right now.  Try it and see.  My guess is that 
you will end up required 2.2.5 due to some Win2k SP issue or feature.
Although I can' give a specific example.  Sid History maybe?
Don't remember if this was supported in 2.0.7 or not.

As long a Windows 2000 is in 'Mixed Mode' and not 'Native Mode' you
should not have any problems as Win2K will continue legacy
compatibility.  However, if your intent is to shift into full Windows
2000 Native mode as I have done here, I expect you will find yourself
needing to upgrade your SAMBA servers as well.
