As Ive been on a odysee for installing W2K on my compaq I want to help other users:
Trouble is, that the graphic-device ATI Rage 128 (AGP) is not supported on the installing-cd of microsoft and the AGP is not found by setup with the bios (99).
I found the Bios-Upgrade started by the bios-id (Award). The ZD-Net-page told me the manufacturer of my board - chaintech - and there I found the right upgrades.
For installing w2k I still had to start with a PCI-graphic-card, unistalled the driver and installed the driver for my ATI-card.

However, a long way - but now it works!
