Huh???   The support (or lack therof) of WPA is a function of the WiFi 
hardware and associated driver, not Windows 2K.   I am currently running 
WPA on the built-in WiFi (Intel  3945ABG  chipset) of a Panasonic 
Toughbook CF-51 "downgraded" to Win 2K SP4+ with no problems at all. 

Perhaps you need a driver upgrade for the WiFi hardware in the machine.
