Question Norton Internet Security 2010 on Win2k Pro?

I just installed Norton Internet Security 2010 for 3 PCs on my Toshiba laptop Windows 7. It specifies only Win 7, VISTA and XP.

I have an IBM tower Intellistation M Pro, dual PIII 900s with Windows 2000 Professional. What harm can I do installing or attempting to install Norton IS 2010 on it? Norton no longer provides av updates for my System Works 2002 and wants to sell me one of their 2006 products for more than I paid for NIS 2010.

If IS 2010 is risky or unworkable, I might keep System Works for the other tools and download Pctools A/V.

Why not just d/l Avast and Spybot. They're both free and work better than Norton, IMO.

Norton and McAfee will take over your computer and slow it down to a degree you will be very unhappy with. As Shadeladie indicated Avast and Spybot do the same thing, no cost and work very well in the background.
