Windows 2000 is NT based like XP minus the eye candy and has lower CPU and memory requirement.

ME is nothing more than re-dressed 98 anyway and still is running on top of DOS. Forget about ME. I could never understand why people bring it up.

2000 is NT version 5.0
XP is NT version 5.1 = only a small kernel revision higher than XP anyways.

I know that 2000 runs very well on K62 systems that are too slow for XP.

The problem is xp which makes with an older K6-2 the clock speed lower. It takes a lot for a machine to run XP.
The best way is either go back to 98 or the only way could be ME.
not much what you can do about it otherwise

Your socket is AM2. You can put any AMD processor that has AM2. If the processor is AM3 just upgrade the bios of your motherboard and it should work. If you need further assistance, just leave a comment. Cheers

AMD Athlon MP 1.0G, 1.2G, 1500+, 1600+, 1800+, 1900+, 2000+, 2100+ (Palomino)
AMD Athlon MP 2000+, 2200+, 2400+, 2600+ (Thoroughbred)

AMD Athlon XP 1600+, 1700+, 1800+, 1900+, 2000+, 2100+, 2200+, 2400+, 2600+, 2700+, 2800+ (Thoroughbred)
AMD Athlon XP 2500+, 2600+, 2800+, 3000+, 3200+ (Barton)

AMD Duron 1.4G, 1.6G, 1.8G (Applebred)
You motherboard uses a "Socket A" CPU and therefore has limits to how high you can go.. I would recommend the XP 2200 or 2400+ as a good choice, but you can make your own choice.

In a word;no. You'd have to go with a whole new motherboard,etc,and considering the age of this system,you'd be much better off buying even a modest new computer,which will have modern,faster,and more upgradable components.Right now,about any AMD64 is quite affordable.
