You can't, sorry. Windows 2000 (or, better, RDP 5.0) only supports 256 colors.
You can only upgrade to Server 2003, or you can use Citrix; ICA supports up to 24bit.

Just adding a second to oBdA's comment - 2000 Terminal Services (without third party add-ons/services such as citrix) does not support more than 256 colors.
