When you say "crashes" at registering components and the computer doesn't seem to do anything, do you mean it seems to hang?

That's the last stage of the installation, and can take a bit of time.

If it remains like that for over 15 minutes, try removing non-essential hardware (such as printer, scanner, and if you don't mind opening the computer case, PCI cards, leaving just the graphics card in). Then do a format and installation again. If that works, after booting into w2k, turn off computer, and re-connect the other hardware and install drivers etc.
