Does MS offer SQL Server 2000 for people who buy SQL Server 2005?

Does anyone know whether people who buy SQL Server 2005 can get a free copy
of SQL Server 2000 before moving to SQL Server 2005? Clients want to buy SQL
Server 2005 but some applications used by the clients only support SQL Server
2000 version until next year. So, clients want to know whether they can buy
SQL Server 2005 but get a free copy of SQL Server 2000 so they can use SQL
Server 2000 until all the applications are supporting 2005.

Thanks.

You can usually get a downgrade license. Contact Microsoft for
clarification.
