In the infinitedimensional case, we show that the cohomology rings $H^*(\m_0)$ and $H^*(\m_2)$ are isomorphic, in contrast to the case of the ground field of characteristic zero, and we obtain a complete description of them. In the finitedimensional case, we find the first three Betti numbers of $\m_0(n)$ and $\m_2(n)$ over $\Z_2$. Keywords: Lie algebra of maximal class, characteristic 2, cohomology, Betti number.
