Can I use Key on case for new install 2000pro

Specs: Windows 2000, 768 Mb
I am rebuilding a Dell OptiPlex GX260 that originally came with 2000 Professional, the hard drive is trash but I will put in a new one. The original Product Key is still on the case. I cannot find the original CD. I can buy 2000 pro on Ebay with no key pretty cheap.
Can I use any 2000 pro software to boot up the system and use the original key?

The key *may* work. Rather than paying for a 10 yr old OS, why not install a 2010 version of Linux for free?

The key may or not work. Look for a working key...install.. then use microsofts key updater to update the key.

Getting a new key makes sense.
Thanks
