Cannot start the svchost.exe on windows 2k3 standard server

I have an Windows 2003 standard server and cannot load SP1 or 2.  I get an error at startup which pertains to the "svchost.exe" service

Faulting application svchost.exe, version 5.2.3790.0, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x00000000.

I tried starting the service manually but it fails.  

Im also getting this error in the system log:

Windows couldn't log the RSoP (Resultant Set of Policies) session status. An attempt to connect to WMI failed. No more RSoP logging will be done for this application of policy.
