You can find bootdisks here. WindowsME boot disk will be the easiest to use as you can type scanreg /restore at the A:\ prompt (it doesn't matter that you have Windows 2000).

Configuring Your Computer to Boot from CD
Many computers are not configured to boot from the CDROM. If you cannot boot from the CDROM, this is probably due to the boot order of your devices being incorrect. You can change this in the BIOS.
You enter the BIOS from the first screen you see when you turn your computer on. To enter your BIOS, most users here will press the DEL key.
Most Dell, Toshiba, Gateway, Sony & HP systems will press F2.
Compaq users will usually have to press F10.
IBM typically uses F1 or F2.
Other brands may have different keys to press to enter setup, F1, F2, Del, Tab and CTRL+S. If possible see the manual for your computer or motherboard. Also, the BIOS will usually display which button to press to "enter setup" during POST (if it flashes by too fast, press the Pause key).
When you enter the BIOS setup, you need to change the boot order. The CDROM should be setup before the Hard Drive. Each BIOS is different, but here is an example:

Press ENTER on the item to select it and continue booting.
Find a file called NTBTLOG.TXT in the C:\WINNT folder and look for drivers that fail to load, or copy and paste any questionable items back here.
P.S. Selecting "last good configuration" from the safe mode menu peforms the same function as scanreg/restore. I didn't remember Win2K having this option.

We're you successful in creating a bootlog (NTBTLOG.TXT )? It sounds like you may be having a problem loading your network drivers. Either becasue the card was knocked loose, or they were corrupted. We can disable them from safemode, but a boot log may confirm this is the problem.
