For error 2 and 5, as per Microsoft ME272560, this is a known problem and they recommend applying the latest service pack for Windows 2000.

According to Microsoft: "To work around this problem, use a group to grant the privilege, and make the user member of this group, instead of using many individual user accounts with a certain privilege. This is a good way to recover after this problem occurs, especially if it might take more time to find the user accounts that are missing from the list than it would to set up the group. Also, a short list of accounts in the policy helps the policy process faster."
