On Windows 2000 machines, you must install Windows 2000 SP1 which installs
MDAC 2.5 SP1. You will not be able to install MDAC 2.5 directly on a
Windows 2000 machine since MDAC 2.5 is now considered part of the OS (and
hence protected - except for the ODBC Drivers which can be stomped on...).
Also, you can install MDAC 2.6 directly on Windows 2000.
