For a windows 2003 server running SQL server 2000, should I have process scheduling and memory usage set to programs or the alternatives (background services / system cache).

No-one logs on directly to the servers and it's main job is the servicing of the SQL databases.

    SQL 2000 runs as a Background service so it makes sense to set the process scheduling to "Backgound Services" and memory usage to "System Cache". These should be set like that as default on Win Server 2003.

    SQL Server Setup do the configuration for you. That's why its not recommended to run another services in a SQL box. SQL makes some changes in the OS in order to increase performance.
