move master database datafiles in SQL Server 2000

It is SQL Server 2000.

I try to test how to move  master database datafiles to a different folder, and I did the following step:

1. change the path from 'SQL Server Properties-->Startup Parameters'.

2. stop SQL Server and copy the master database datafiles to the new directory.

But I can't restart the SQL Server anymore, just wonder what I did wrong?

How to fix the issue?

Thanks a lot!

What accounts are you using for your services? And do they have permissions to the location.

You may have to go into the registry and confirm/change the parameters:
