Q

Table partition support

Does SQL Server 2000 support table partitions? (such that the table contents can be spread into several files based on a column or two).

Yes and no. You can partition specific indexes onto specific files or filegroups. The data will reside with the primary key. There isn't any functionality to split data within a table into separate files groups based on a constraint. That being said, you CAN partition a table across multiple servers based on a column constraint. This is called distributed partitioned views.
