As long as it's possible to boot from a USB stick on that laptop (which is probably quite old).

Technically the system requirements specify 32MB minimum, 128MB recommended. In my experience, Win2k runs pretty decently on that amount of RAM (unless you try to run the newest Firefox or LibreOffice) but it's definitely worth checking which services can be disabled to really make it fly.

Of course the source had been fully updated with HFSLIP before running nLite.
* Tip: You may want to leave IE5 and not update it to IE6. IE5 based Windows Explorer is actually faster. Of course you should use other browsers to browse the Web Same goes for other components like DX (keep DX7) or MDAC (keep MDAC 2.5). You should only install security fixes for them but not install any new versions.
