You can't. You have to get use the Backup utility on a Win98 machine to extract it and then move the extracted files over to the Win2000 installation.

The Backup tool in Windows NT and Windows 2000 uses a different format for tapes and files than the Backup tool in Windows 95/98. The two formats are not interchangeable.

RESOLUTION
You must restore the data from the tape or file using the Backup tool on a computer running Windows 95/98.
