I have seen this exactly.
I know this will be a major inconvenience when it comes to the other end but you need to delete the contents of the windows folder and do a fresh install booting of the win2k CD.
Its a problem with the special boot features in ME.
(Coupled with the fact that ME was possibly the worst OS ever written)

If you still have problems. Make a ME boot disk and then format the drive before you install 2k.
Remember: Windows ME to 2000 is not a MS supported upgrade path. (As discussed in this article)

I have saved all my files and reformatted the HD but when it was finished installing everthing it freezes after it restart. Is there some thing I'm doing wrong??

Make sure that if you were using a boot floppy you removed it before restarting. It also could be the cdrom in the cdrom tray, so you could try removing that also when restarting. Other than that, I guess it is just screwing up during the install process, and I would say, try it again.
