windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupted <windows 2000 root>system32\ntoskrnl.exe

first try booting with a boot floppy
format a floppy with a 2k, nt or 2k3 machine
copy the ntldr, ntdetect and a boot.ini file on to the floppy
make sure the boot.ini points to the corrct path

try booting off of this, if this doesn't work, it may be a harddrive problem or true file corruption
have a 2k disk handy to run recovery console to determine what the problem is

You could try booting off the Windows 2000 CD and entering the recovery console.

FIXBOOT might help, even try CHKDSK /R.....
