Windows 2000 KB and MSDN archive?

As you know Extended Support for all versions of Windows 2000 will end on 2010/07/13.

There are 2 ways to download all the updates:
WSUS Offline Update
Using "WSUS Offline Update", you can update any computer running Microsoft Windows safely, quickly and without an Internet connection. As licensed under "GNU GPL", you still may download and use the software from this site for free. Nevertheless, your donation would help to keep this state.


http://www.update.microsoft.com/windows ... x?ln=en-us
Update multiple operating systems
To select from updates issued for all Windows operating systems, including software updates for servers and driver (hardware) updates, search the Windows Update Catalog.



But its one thing to download all the updates and have a copy of them stored locally, but what about all the Windows 2000 related information found in KB articles as well as on the MSDN? How do you quickly make an archive of that information?

For example, this KB article:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/919521/
didn't have any files to download but rather described a registry edit. How do I quickly find all the KB articles that relate to any edition of Windows 2000 and then save them?

As for MSDN, have a look at this article:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library ... 25(v=VS.85).aspx
This article talked about INF files and Windows 2000. How would I quickly find all the articles on MSDN that relates to any edition of Windows 2000 and then save them? Are MSDN articles saved to a DVD and posted out to people?

The windows 98 solution database is still online, why do you expect the windows 2000 database to be shut down?

With the 2010/07/13 rolling around, I am not sure what will happen. Will Windows Update still work? Will all the Windows 2000 related information still be found on KB articles, MSDN, and TechNet?
