As you're running SQL 2000 Express I assume you're looking for a free version of the SSRS server?  Perhaps you can look into SQL Server 2014 Express Edition with Advanced Services.  It doesn't support all SSRS features but it does have the server and designer parts.

More details on what it supports: Features Supported by the Editions of SQL Server 2014
