A few things:

1. Check your BIOS that its setup fine - Shouldnt be much of a problem though, and is probably fine!

2. Check that you havent used the FAT16 File System (Native to Win95), as that has a 2 Gig limit, so you will need to see (3.)

3. Check that you havent only partitioned 2 gigs and left 3 gigs unpartitioned. Right click on My computer (In Win2K) and select Manage My Computer.
Click on Disk Management and have a look, as you may be able to add a second partition in there!

Cheers
