I guess the inf files might not be right for win2k...

I don't have any time at the moment to look into it, but basically go
into each inf file, delete any line with 'amd64' in it, and section with
'amd64' in the square brackets, and remove 'x86' from any line that has
it, and the preceding '.' if any, so "%XenGplPv%=XenGplPv,NTx86" becomes
"%XenGplPv%=XenGplPv,NT" and "SourceDisksNames.x86" becomes

Let me know if you are successful, and I'll attempt to make a .inf file
that 'just works' for everything :0
