You van use notepad and put the next script in then save it as .vbs.
Change "computername" with the computername of your server.
I don't have tried. No server 2000 here now :

'--- Disable account ADSI script ---
Set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
UName = InputBox("Disable account","Username to disable : ")

Set UserObj = GetObject("WinNT://ComputerName/" & UName)
UserObj.AccountDisabled = True
UserObj.SetInfo
Set UserObj = Nothing
'--- End Disable account ---

The script will open an inputbox to allow you to enter a username
