I admit to knowing very little about Win2k, but on the only box I've
installed Win2k on, it doesn't *appear* to be running:

Port State Protocol Service
135 open tcp loc-srv
139 filtered tcp netbios-ssn
445 open tcp microsoft-ds
1025 open tcp list

...unless it runs on one of those 3 other open ports? This was Win2k
Client, not server, BTW...perhaps you mean every Win2k Server?
