SQL Server 2005 installation issue

I wiped our test box which we want to have sql 2000 as the default instance and a named instance of sql 2005. I wiped the box, installed sql 2000 standard sp3a. Used that for a few days, then installed sql 2005 standard. Now we can’t connect to either instance. SQL 2005 installed the database engine, but would not install the client tools. We uninstalled 2005 and we still can’t connect to the 2000 instance from a remote computer. We can pull up EM on the server and it works fine, but can’t connect from a client. Please let me know if anyone has any ideas. Thanks,
I’ve moved to relevant forum. Luis Martin
