Just curious...does prefetching work with win2000?  I know it works with xp, but I'm not finding a clear answer one way or the other with 2000pro...

No it does not.

Prefetching is a process unique to XP, which stores temporary settings that help load frequently accessed files and applications faster. However, after a time, the folder gets clogged up and overloaded, much like the temp directory found in all Windows Operating Systems, and needs to be cleaned out every so often. Go to %systemroot%Prefetch, delete everything in there and reboot. This should be done as often as you normally clean out your temp directories.
