If you have the W2k CD with the proper product code it should be easy.

I like to do a wipe of the drive so that I have a clean slate to start with, you can download a free trial of Wipe Drive here. After the hdd is wiped boot from the CD and follow the prompts to partition, format, and install the operating system.

If you have any problems come back here and let us know.
