Ok, so I am working on freshly installing win2000 to a clean, new hd.  I have 4 boot disks made from the CDrom, and the cdrom as well.  I tell bios to boot from cd.... no dice.  It's possible that it isn't bootable.  Fine.  I tell bios boot from floppy...   I get "Disk I/O error: Status = 00001000NTDETECT failed."  I'm stumped.  Help???

Are you sure that you are setting the bios to boot floppy or cd first, then HD?

The HD cable connection is correct ? The BIOS detected the HD (Primary or Slave) ? How about CDRom and Floppy are also working (cabling) as normal ?

Sounds like the boot disk is bad.  Try to get one from someone else that has win2000 or try to download a boot disk, I have seen them before but don't know of any download sites.  Just run a search

Does it actually read the floppy drive? If not, reset the BIOS
