Are you using the SQL agent?

You can probably find this in the Veritas Knowledge Base, which usually has every error I encountered.  Unfortunately, I don't have enough info to look this up.  So here is what you need to do:
1) Go to this link:
http://www.symantec.com/enterprise/support/knowledge_base.jsp?pid=15047
2) Enter "SQL Failure Virtual Device" as your search
3) Select Version 9.1
4) Select OS Windows 2000
5) Click the error to start searching

You'll see a lot of KB articles to read for your specific errors and event logs.  Most likely one of those will be your exact error.

If you can't find your answer there, there's also a good moderated forum here:

Hey.. Just 1 point to note...

In your server > time > timezone, check & make sure "Automaticall Adjust Clock for Daylight Savings" is NOT checked / selected.

There is a known issue with this.
