unable to start 6.5 services on nt4 error 1105, event id 17060

hi i have  6.5 sql on nt 4 trying to get the services started to restore a db but upon starting the sqlserver service i get a event id 17060, it says in log file that it cant allocate spae for syslogs, failed to create tempdb , error 1105

and in the service window when you try to start the service it fails and a dialog pops up with error, event id 2140

?any ideas?
