Hi,

I formatted the disk and am trying to do fresh installation of w2000, however, (very likely) since I do not use the original installation CD, the process was terminated asking me to get "ad_.ch file. I have not found this file on internet.
What to do ? (thinking about converting to Linux).

What do you mean with "since I do not use the original installation CD"?

You have a duff copy of the CD. If you can't get an original, licensed version then you cannot install the OS.

Cheers
