I bought an EMC Iomega 1-terabyte network attached storage drive. I bought it primarily to replace an older desktop computer as the main repository for files that might be created on that computer or laptops.
Initially, though, I want to back up the older computer onto the network attached storage.
I now have learned that the installation software works only on Windows XP or later, but the older computer runs Windows 2000. Am I permanently unable to make the older computer see the network attached storage, or can I use it somehow after setting up the drive from an XP computer?

I have the same problem, the Iomega discovery software won't install on a single W2K machine on my network. Both the Iomega drive and the W2K machine have fixed IP addresses but that doesn't seem to help - how did you get yours to discover?
Sorry, all I remember is setting the host name for the Iomega drive from my router Web page setup.
Now I just have this printer problem. The printer port generally works, but occasionally it just stops working from both Windows and Mac. I found that powering off the Iomega drive and then bringing it back up makes the printer work again. To power off, I have to hold down the power button for maybe 20 seconds till the second light flashes. A second push of the button brings it back up.
