How can I find out using Java Applet, whether the user has Administrator Privilege or not?

My application will be used on Windows 2000 platform only.

You can't do that in pure Java. Since you're on Windows only, you might use a Java-to-COM bridge which accesses a COM object that gets you this information (I'm assuming that such an object exists). The applet would need to signed in order to access native code, though.
