The problem is that you are using SiS-based chip cards.
The trick is to have one of your PCI cards be the primary card, instead of
your AGP card. This should be setting in your BIOS. If you can't find that
setting in your BIOS, try a BIOS upgrade. Note that not all BIOS
manufacturers support switching the primary graphics card (actually, it's
the motherboard manufacturers).
However, in my experience, the SiS-based card won't work as the primary when
a AGP card is also available.
Also make sure that there is no graphics board in the last PCI slot (the one
furthest from the AGP slot). They will always share an IRQ, which will also
lead to problems, especially if you don't use ACPI.
Another trick is to not use ACPI when installing W2K. During install, in the
very beginning of the text-based setup, you will see a message 'Press F6 to
install ...' Press F5 during that message (yes, that's a five). Later on,
you will be able to choose the HAL to use. Select 'Standard PC'.
