    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.
