FYI, Windows 2000 server does have Dynamic Disk which you can access through
Disk Management.  It's part of some versions of server, like enterprise ed.,
and also part of the Win 2000 Resource Kit.

I think there are some gotchas regarding upgrading boot or system partitions
from basic to dynamic, so you may still be in a backup-repartition-restore
situation, but it's worth checking out.
