On the W2K machine check the properties of "My Computer". On the tab "User 
Profiles" you can
choose where the files in "My Documents" will be stored.

Maybe you should switch your current profile to "Local". If it's set to 
"server steered"
(or similar term), win2k will always synchronise the files during 

P.S.: I hope i used the right terms above, because i'm using a german 
windows version.
