Yes.  You also need to make changes to config.nmake to indicate the use
of VC6.

I guess folks are:

a) Using a combination of EE and SDK that works on W2K
b) Not testing/using on W2K
c) Using VS2005 Pro or better with a different SDK.

We have had several threads in the past few months with this issue, but
no-one who has had the issue has stayed the course until we resolved it.

You may want to buck the trend!
