You will want to reformat when moving from ME to 2000. The two platforms are incompatable. However, the reward you will get from doing that reformat then upgrading to 2000 is more than worth it. 2000 is so much better of an OS than ME.

You cannot upgrade from ME to 2k.
I would get XP. You can upgrade to XP but I would format.
