Office 2000 "silently" upgrades your version of IE to version 5. It sounds like you're having trouble with this part of it.

Put the first Office 2000 CD in the CD-ROM drive, the click on Start, Run, Browse, then browse to the /ie5/en folder on the CD. Double-click on IE5Setup.exe and this will start the install/upgrade of IE in a manner where you will be able to see exactly what's going on. You'll probably still get the error, but at least you'll be able to see the specific error causing the problem, instead of the generic error message you're getting from Office 2000. It could be something as simple as not enough disk space, or too many .tmp files laying around in your C:\windows\temp folder.
