Right on ATI's website are drivers for Windows 2000, they are the same
drivers as the Windows XP drivers.

I just did the same thing (except my 8300 has the NVidia card). I
managed to find all of the drivers that I needed on the Internet. In
particular, you can find Win2K drivers for the ATI Radeon family at
www.ati.com. The drivers that I had to download were as follows:
1) Video (from NVidia); 2) Audio (SoundMax), 3) Intel Chipset for
8300; 4) Modem (BCM v.92 56K), and 5) NIC. Several of the drivers I
got from Dell's Support site; the rest came from the Web. Kept adding
drivers until all of the pesky exclamation points (!) went away. I
needed all five of these ...

If you despise windows xp because of the GUI, I recommend you go back to the
"Classic" environment in Display preferences.

I doubt anyone has made 9800 drivers for Win2k if you can't find such
drivers in a search sweep of 'hack/crack' websites. But that's where they'd
be if they're around at all.
