You got it backwards.  If the year is 00 then divide the century by 400.
1700, 1800, 1900 are NOT leap years and 2000 is.

I thought the leap year rule stated that any year evenly divisible
by 4 was a leap year unless it was also evenly divisible by 400
and then it wasn't. That would make 1700, 1800 and 1900 leap
years, but 2000 wouldn't be. Yet everywhere I look, it shows a
Feb 29th in 2000 (calendars, PIM software, OS/400 date data
types, etc). I seem remember a thread on this list a while back
and it was stated that 2000 wasn't a leap year. Can anyone set
me straight here.
