This can be achieved in several ways with out the aid of external software.
1. For a single image- make sure you know where it is located on your computer[the usual default is My documents/My pictures- then any folder you create therein.
having done that got to Control panel/display/screen saver/ browse to my pictures slide show -and take it from there you will need a selection of images for the screen saver to work- it relies on a 'moving element of multiple images'

If you simply wish for a background shot, then go to desk top and browse to the single image,

jack. followed your suggestion's but the "browse" button only appears in "background" not screensaver.....

coff. downloaded 2flyer...worked a treat....

My Pictures Slideshow isn't part of Windows 2000. I think you could get it to work by copying ssmypics.scr from an XP computer and placing in WINNT\System32 but I've never tried that. Anyway, you are sorted out now.
