Changing windows 4 to windows 2000 xp

First off, there is a big difference between windows 2000 and xp.
She needs her windows 2000 install disks and to re-install windows. Then she needs to install her service packs onto it. Either that or upgrade to windows xp. Id suggest she upgrade if she has decent hardware(memory, cpu and hard drive space)

There is no shortcut or work around unless you want to start using pirated stuff, which is probably not a good idea since most of that stuff is just an avenue for viruses and backdoor programs.

Conversions of Windows 2000 to 2003 messed up my office network

Problem installing Operating system

Stop Messages During Installation An unsuccessful attempt to install Windows 2000 can result in a Stop message. When this happens, first check that the computer and all of its peripheral hardware are compatible with Windows 2000. To do this, refer to the latest Windows 2000 Hardware Compatibility List (HCL). Microsoft compiles the HCL through rigorous component and compatibility testing of computers and peripheral hardware to determine if they work well with Windows 2000. For more information about the HCL, see "Additional Resources" at the end of this chapter.
If the hardware you use is not included on the Windows 2000 HCL, contact the hardware manufacturer as a first-line resource for available information, newly tested hardware, and Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) and firmware revisions. Reducing the number of hardware components by removing nonessential peripherals and devices can help you pinpoint installation conflicts as well.
