2000 rules.  Microsoft finally learned how to write a good OS!  Very stable,
and really smooth when used on a dual-CPU system.  Use 2000 if you possibly
can.  It does a good job of running most legacy apps.  Apps that talk
directly to hardware (such as DOS apps) will run slowly.

If you are going to stick with non-NT variants, Win 98SE is probably your
best option.

I would avoid XP like the plague.  It has hooks in it to let Microsoft
remotely deactivate your license whenever they decide it's time for you to
upgrade and pay more.  They call it the .NET platform.  Sounds like a
protection racket to me.
