    Well you could use a remote server, set it up in Dreamweaver, remote
    site/testing site. There are also some free sites that would allow one
    to run cgi-scripts, included etc., Brinkster comes to mind, as it's one
    of the few free ones that don't have a banner. Going this route, I don't
    think you'll be able to access it from the site(s) area in Dreamweaver
    though.

    Um, does Windows 2000 come with IIS? If it does, you can just use that. I
    think it does.. or it's on the CD and you can install it?
