Hello, I have poked around the forums and googled for an answer to this problem but I'm a developer not an admin...so I'm a bit confused about this.  I am trying to use my sql server (its SQL Server 2000 running on Windows 2000 professional) and every time I click on "create new linked server" it gives me the mmc.exe has generated errors and shuts down sql server.

I'm not exactly sure how to fix this and was hoping someone could guide me through it.  If I go to start, run and type mmc.exe it opens up fine.  So, please help if you can!  Thanks!

Without the CD you will not be able to repair the installation.
You might get lucky by installing the latest service pack for SQL2000 (which I believe is SP3)
