asi you can't uninstall netmeeting in win2000 with the reguler win2000 add/remove software
you can try to download a third pary program that does it or wait untill MS will develop a new Version of netmeeting and then you will have an uninstall for it.
sorry. ;)

Adding Optional Components to Add/Remove Programs Tool

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----
The information in this article applies to:

Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----


SUMMARY
During Windows 2000 Setup, the following components are installed by
default:

Games


Accessories (Calculator, Clock, and so on)


Multimedia


Accessibility options


These items also do not appear in the Add/Remove Programs tool in Control
Panel after Setup is finished. This article describes how to cause these
items to be displayed during Setup or in the Add/Remove Programs tool after
Setup is finished.



MORE INFORMATION
NOTE: Microsoft does not support the editing or modifying of .inf files
included on the Windows 2000 CD-ROM or distribution server. This information
is provided only as a convenience and is not supported.

Displaying the Items After Setup Is Finished
In the %SystemRoot%\Inf folder on the system volume, use a text editor (such
as Notepad) to open the Sysoc.inf file.


Locate the "old base components" line.


For each component you want to appear in the Add/Remove Programs tool,
remove the "Hide" comment. For example, change
Games=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,games.inf,HIDE,7
to:
Games=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,games.inf,,7



Also remove the "HIDE" option from the "AccessUtil=" line. If you leave this
option hidden, then none of the other components in the "old base
components" section are available in Add/Remove Programs.


Save and then close the file.


Displaying the Items During Setup
Copy the I386 folder to a distribution share.


expand the Sysoc.in_ file using the following command
expand -r sysoc.in_



Edit the Sysoc.inf file using steps 2-4 above.


Rename the Sysoc.in_ file to Sysoc.bak.
