James........more information about the exact error that DCPromo is throwing when it fails would make this much easier, but..............from the little bit of information that you give, this may be a DNS problem........DNS needs to be properly setup and configured on your system for Active Directory to install  and run.

Please discribe exactly what happens when you run dcpromo, including the exact text of the error message.

You ran dcpromo on the new Win2K server to make it a DC in your domain, correct?  Check out these articles:
