Thanks for all your help on my last qustion (Re: Carbon fork), and, after riding both, I've decided to go with the carbon fork.
Now, I could get the 2002 Trek 1200 w/ a carbon fork for the same price as the 2001 Trek 2000 (comes with carbon fork, and 105's instead of Tiagra). Am I better off getting a bike a year old (but still new) with better components, or did any significant changes happen in the last year?

As a general rule, you'd be better off with the 105 components but I think I read somewhere(ProCycling or CycleSport) that Trek made changes to their aluminum frames for 2002. I'll try to find the article tonight. You might want to check Trek's website.

No 'significant' changes have happened in many years. Bikes were perfected long ago. If the year old bike has better components, get it.
