I'm sorry to hear that.  I couldn't find it as a resource kit download
for Windows 2000 either.  However, there should be a serialpps.reg
file in the .zip you downloaded containing:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


That is a long way of saying ImagePath=system32\drivers\serialpps.sys
and should accomplish the same thing as the reg command in the
installation batch file.  Double-click on the .reg file and allow it
to be applied, reboot, and with any luck you'll be in business.
