OK I have searched the boards and I don't see where anyone has found
an actual solution to this.

I have an 80GB IDE HDD with Win2K SP3 loaded on it. I have an ECS
Mobo with PC100 512MB of ram installed (two sticks). I have an ATI
Rage 128 Video card installed.

Here ios the issue, I tried starting from scratch and getting a system
running but to no avail so I used another machine to get the Win 2K on
the (new) HDD. Still the saem,
the system runs through boot up and then it blue screens with the
following message
STOP: 0x00000067 (0x00000004, 0x00000007, 0x00000000)
CONFIG_INITIALIZATION_FAILED
I have the FSB settings at 100/100 as they won't work at any other
setting.

You'll want to boot the Windows 2000 setup disks or CD-Rom. The set of four
install disks can be created from your Windows 2000 CD-Rom; change to the
\bootdisk directory on the CD-Rom and execute makeboot.exe (from dos) or
makebt32.exe (from 32 bit) and follow the prompts.

Then *F6* very early and very important (at setup is inspecting your system)
in the setup to prevent drive controller detection, and select S to specify
additional drivers. Then later you'll be prompted to insert the manufacturer
supplied Windows 2000 driver for your ATA100 controller in drive "A"

If you wait and then S to specify additional drivers, then it may be too
late as Windows 2000 Setup at this point may have already assigned the
resources your drive's controller is wanting to use.

When you get to the point, delete the existing NTFS and or other partitions
found. After you delete the partition(s) abort the install, then again
restart the pc booting the CD-Rom or setup disks to avoid unexpected drive
letter assignments with your new install.
