I do not know about this version of postgresql, but in principle pgsql service 
should work on Windows 2000. I am using Windows2000 quite a few 
months now as server and as client via the ultrasql version corresponding 
with pgsql 7.0.2 without any major problem. So if it works quite well for 7.0.2 
there is no reason why it should not work for 7.5 or other versions, unless 
there is somewhere a bug in it.
