Hi, in the near Future I will build a PC and will Install XP (Multiboot). I like Luna , but I'm still in Love with the old Windows Style? Is there maybe a Windows 2000 Theme for XP? With Icons, old Superbar (don't know any other name since Win7) (Old Windows Logo on Start Button) etc.? I searched in Deviantart and on google and didn't find something great! Even greater would be a Whistler 2250 Theme pack, but I concentrate more on the one above? Any saw one or want to make one?
It's a Windows Me theme but hell it's close enough to Windows 2000, I've used it on XP and imho it looks pretty good. For the old windows logo on the start menu you're gonna need to do some hacking, or use something like UxTheme. IIRC the image for the Windows logo on the start button is in USER.EXE but I'm not completely sure about that on NT, 9x? yes.

Can't you just set the windows classic theme and disable visual styles? And maybe disable fast user switching (so you get the W2K-style login window)? Or are you looking for more customization than that?
