Also try going inside using bootdisk (www.bootdisk.com) or safe mode

Also check for MS blaster worm

Does safe mode work?

Do you get to the 2000 splash screen/login prompt?

Is it a new machine or just started happening?  Anything upgraded/installed before problems arose?

Does Last Known Good Configuration work?

A bit more detail is needed unless you do an inplace upgrade as sunray says.  We may be able to fix your current version without having to do that if you provide more info.

If you get it started try the system file checker - you need to have your Win2K cd in.
start>run
sfc /scannow
this will check for any corrupt system files.

Make sure you have the latest windows updates and then clean the machine.
Go to www.symantec.com and run the online virus check.

If its clean, run sfc /scannow.
