You will want to download the newest version of sysprep from MS as that supports different HAL's.  If you don't download it, change the IDE Controllers back to windows default before using sysprep.

If you use setupmgr from the Deploy cab on the 2000 CD to create the sysprep.inf file and get it setup how you want it (office, email, etc) then run sysprep -pnp.  Once it shuts down ghost the image to a ghost server and then your done.  Its very easy to do.
