As far as drivers go, Windows 2000 should have a majority of them. Now you will probably need to get a video driver, NIC driver, and Modem driver. To find all of this, plus your other utilitiies you want, I would suggest that you go to the dell website. They have all the drivers, and stuff you need there.

normally, you should be able to upgrade your system to win2000 without any problems.
You might have to update/download some drivers forum the internet for your hardware components to work. You can find the minimum system requirements ont the website of microsoft.
