Linking SQL Server to Web-based system

What language is used to link Microsoft SQL Server 2000 (database) to a Web-based system as a front end?

SQL. But, this isn't really a link. It is the language which you use to communicate to the database server once you have a connection. For Microsoft SQL Server and Sybase, it is more specifically called Transact SQL, for Oracle it is PL/SQL, and I can't remember what it is for DB2. But, the generic name for the language construct is SQL. To "link" an application to a database server you use some sort of connection library. This can be ODBC, OLE DB, or a vendor specific connection library. Whether it is a Web-based front end or not is completely irrelevant since you connect the same way regardless.
