I've run into this at least a dozen times. The four items below
generally take care of it.
Quick-n-dirty on the new Exchange 2000 server: 
3) Use Administrator to do the install
And a quick-n-dirty for the Exchange 5.5 server:
4) Make sure that Exchange55 is listening on port 389 and LDAP is turned
on for Exchange 55

Subject: [exchangelist] Error while installing Exchange 2000 in Exchange
5.5 Site(0xC103F C93(64659)

Hello Folks,
I am getting a strange error while trying to install Exchange 2000
Server in Exchange 5.5 Site. While running FORESTPREP the wizard
prompted to enter Exchange 5.5 Server name, and when i try to give that,
it popsup with error "Setup encountered error while attempting to bind
the Exchange Server "Servername:0xC103FC93(64659): could not bind to the
Microsoft Exchange Directory Server,SERVERNAME. The Microsoft Exchange
Server computer doesnot respond"
I am really stumped. Actually, i am trying to migrate from Exchange 5.5
to Exchange 2000. I have completed upgrading WINDOWS NT 4 PDC to 2000
Domain controller thru In Place Upgrade Method and everything went
fine.. Now i am trying to migrate from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2000
thru Move Mail box method. I am following these documents;
