It is going to be very difficult with a single setting, like a manifest file, or FlatStyle = System, since those are only allowed in XP.  You might want to look outside of the language for companies that may have handled this for you.  I don't believe that your project should be on hold for this, since it may be difficult (if not impossible) to accomplish this on Win 2k without a lot of research.
