The second link did list a bunch of files for updating Office 2000. One of those was Sp2upd.exe. It's a dead link on the page but I googled for it and found a copy on Microsoft's site. But it wants the Office upgraded to SR-1. I can't find a download for doing that.

Apparently that was a major change and is needed first... I did find o2ksr1a.exe, but that won't run right.
