Network install of A2K with license mgr.

Hello,
I've been trying for a few days to install Autocad 2000 on several machines using the ADLM license manager. I have installed ADLM on a machine that is going to act as the license manager, but which is not a server. ADLM is running on that machine.
The problem comes when I try to install A2K on the client machines. I called Autodesk to get my Authorization code for the server copy. It is this huge number (25 digits).
First question: Do I have to get another authorization code for the client machines?
When I try to install A2K on the client machine, I am assuming that I will be using the Client and Autodesk License Manager Installation. What I would like to do is to install from CD onto the client machine.
Second question: Do I have to create the network setup or can I install from CD and use the license manager?
I had our system administrator help me out for a while with this. He went with the install from network path and now we have a client.exe on our server that installs Autocad. However, it asks for a authorization code. The code I got for the server is way too big and doesn't work (see question 1).
Third question: Is this right path to achieve my installation goals?
We have also upgraded 4 copies of R14 to R2000 network versions. I noticed that the serial numbers of the network versions are slightly different from the standalone. The network numbers begin with 180- while the standalone begin with 110-. We used the 110- number for the A2k install of ADLM.
Fourth question: Should I have used a different serial number? That was the number on the box.
I realize that this is a fairly long post and I apologize if it doesn't make sense. I tried calling Autodesk for help and they told me to call my VAR. My VAR doesn't have time right now. I have to get this done before we can deploy some new computers.
Thanks in advance.
