I'm not sure working with SQL 2000 will work. While you can normally attach MDF files (the database file) into SQL Server, the supplied ones use SQL Server 2005 Express Edition, which is a later version, and you might not be able to attach that to SQL 2000. The book and website has been designed around SQL Express, so all of the data would have to be exported from the existing database and imported into SQL 2000; you'd need additional tools for that.

The security database can easily be configured to use SQL 2000 as there is a tool call aspnet_regsql in the framework directory (c:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727).
