Sql Server 2000 is no longer supported since the release of Sql server 2008.
You may always download the SP4 for Sql Server 2000, but that's all.
You should think to use Sql Server 2008
It is possible to download the Sql Server Entreprise 2008 Evaluation ( for 180 days ).It is free and you can "upgrade" from the evaluation edition to an official edition.
It is a little difficult to find the trial download ( around the middle of the page )
But be careful, there are many changes between Sql Server 2000 and Sql Server 2008 ( novelties and disappeared features ).
You may have some incompatibilities if you try to use features which were depreciated with Sql Server 2005 and no more recognized with Sql Server 2008
Don't hesitate to post again for more help or explanations
Have a nice day
