You haven’t mention the error number, but most likely this is error 823 which is almost always related to hardware failure. See if this helps:http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/sql/2000/maintain/sqlIObasics.mspx
Check your hardware *very* carefully. You might also want to consider moving to a more recent OS. —
