avast! 5 cannot be installed on a server OS (there's no server version of avast! 5 yet).

Windows 2000 is als the name for the client software back then....   windows 2000 professional and windows 2000 server.

if you would have taken the time to click on the button  PRODUCTS (http://www.avast.com/security-software-home-office)  then you could have seen in the right side of the site that there is a special section for businesses.....

a home user or a home office user doesnt run windows server software (legally)
if you do run that software for some reason legal, then you have a business and then you are not eligible for the free product

if you click on the business tab on the homepage (http://www.avast.com/index#tab3) then you see that they offer the v5 product but it mentions that its for DESKTOP protection, and you see that for server products they offer the v4 version.....
