I don't know about the '00, on my '97 the rotors are "captive," which means that they are sandwiched between the hub and the knuckle. There is no way to remove them without removing the hub and bearing assembly from the knuckle, which means that the bearings have to be replaced afterward, and this all should be done by a qualified machine shop equipped with a hydraulic press to press the hub out and in, which means that you'll also need to disassemble the entire knuckle from the ball joint, strut, and tie rod so you can take it to the machine shop.

As an alternative, if all you need to do is to re-surface the rotors, you can look for a shop that has an "on-car-lathe," which means that they can re-surface the rotors without removing them from the car. This costs more than regular resurfacing with removable rotors, but it's a lot cheaper than rebuilding the bearings. A local shop here does it for $65 per rotor with the on-car lathe, as opposed to $15 for regular rotors.
