believe it or not, it doesn't delete your data and your settings should be retained.

it won't delete any data (pst file). .pst file is the data in your Outlook.  Like  reinstalling any application  program, the data file won't be deleted. When you install Outlook 2000, it will automatically upgrade your Outlook from 97 to 2000. It won't hurt your .pst file.

Yep.  It is quite easy.  As already suggested, just install OL2k and you are off and rolling.  Of course, you should back up your data just in case.  Just because it hasn't zapped anything in millions of cases, it doesn't GUARANTEE that it won't on yours.  If something does go wrong, you just restore the backup.
