    After rebooting our SQL 2K5 server (with sp2), teh MSDB is now at 'in recovery' status. Because of it, other user databases are not functioning or not accessible. How can I make the MSDB functioning again without affecting any existing user databases. I don't care I lose any jobs or history. Any help on this is very much appreciated.

    do you have a backup of the msdb database?

    First check sql error logs for the reason...
    If you have the backup then you restore MSDB like a regular user db after stopping the sql agent...

    As referred by Akthar if you have a backup you are at safe, if not you have to take backup from another machine (similar setup & sevice pack) and restore here.

    Also check the location where MSDB is stored should be in good health or check for disk free space.
