USB Critical Fault in WIN Server 2000

Our new computer is running WIN 2000 Server and seems to be good except for USB 2.0 support.  Whenever we plugin a flash drive, a wireless mouse (or presumably any other USB 2.0 hardware) the computer shows a critical fault and begins memory dump (BSOD).

Is this a common problem with Server 2000 or perhaps I have another problem with the computer itself?

I don't know if any of the Server versions handle USB well - I keep hearing about problems getting them to work, while the regular non-server OS'es don't have a problem.  Look at this troubleshooting guide, it may point you to something in your system that you can do something about: http://www.usbman.com/Troubleshooter%20General.htm
