Many expected Microsoft to detect hardware and install drivers, but this is not true. Also, what little information you provided (it is good, but not enough) doesn't share what's in the box.
Installing Windows 2000 in a nutshell works like this.
1. Install 2000.
2. Install drivers for everything else.
3. Install firewall and antivirus.
4. Windows Update for a few hours.
5. Install directx and what else you need.
It's far from automatic.
