Unfortunately, that is an improvement on Outlook 2002.  On Outlook 2000, you cannot select the account to use "on the fly".  You can only change the default account.

I will check to see if there is any 3rd party or addin solutions for this, but I don't believe there is.  The best bet would be to upgrade all pc's to Outlook 2002 if everyone needs this function.

Good one Sunray!  I forgot about IMO's options and didn't even think about "send on behalf".
