Deleted sysvol share

I have a Win2k server which i stupidly deleted the sysvol share. Luckly this server doesnt do to much (its an ISA server) but I keep getting the following error.

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Userenv
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1000
Date:            21/04/2004
Time:            11:16:46
User:            NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
Computer:      CCHSPROXY2
Windows cannot access the registry information at \\\sysvol\\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\Machine\registry.pol with (53).

Could I just demote it and then promote it ? Would this create a new Sysvol and share.

Thanks in advance

There is a Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 257338 :Troubleshooting Missing SYSVOL and NETLOGON Shares on Windows 2000 Domain Controllers;en-us;257338

The procedure in this kb is for replica domain controllers and should do for your server.

Two reboots did the trick. First one killed the server the second one took a while but luckly it came back
