Sadly these installers have been retired from the Microsoft current products that you can download, as far as it is not active anymore (and of course, not supported).

I recommend that you contact someone with the original versions of these products and if you have the legal rights to use them, then you copy the media and use your license. If you do not have a license of this product, then you can contact Microsoft and ask them to apply for the downgrade right to obtain a license of a legacy product having a new one.

On another hand, it is true that you can download the installers from non official sources. But it is absolutely not recommended as far as It would be such a big risk, because it could contain any sort of malicious codes inside it.

For something that old, go to eBay and search for Office 2000. Contact the seller and attempt to determine their truthfulness as to selling you a good set with a good key.

Why do you need it? I have it running and there is nothing special about it. Get a newer Office.

except buying 2nd hand a genuine Office 2000 CD with the product key sticked on its original CD box, I don't trust any other media including downloaded ISO or executable installer, which is very likely malware planted. therefore, for a genuine copy, rarely available only by chance.

Office 2000 disks are readily available on e-bay in the $10 - $20 range:  http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR8.TRC1.A0.H0.XOffice+2000.TRS0&_nkw=Office+2000&_sacat=0

As long as they include the product key, these should all be fine, as they're shipping the hologramed Microsoft disks.    Note that this was pre-activation, so as long as you have the key there's no issue with the installation.

However, even if technically any media can work. From a legal perspective a software gotten through ebay should be a 'retail' edition. Legally an 'OEM' edition is not valid as far as can not be transferred to a different hardware than the one that was originally from, even if it will install correctly and the license will become active.
