what sort of hard drive are we dealing with? use the hard drive vendors software to make sure the write cache on the drive is enabled :)

Yup, this is because the disk subsystem you have installed has a write cache that does not support the cache control commands used by windows 2000. If this is only a recent error then it suggests that the write cache is not working properly and is likely to fail altogether - you should replace the disk urgently.
