Missing/Corrupt system file

last night i installed Win2000 on my second partition worked just fine.
today i go to open WinXP pro and i get this

Win2000 could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOW\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEMd

i think it might be just the boot.ini is messed up but i dont have time to check it
any help would be greatly appreciated(hope thats spelled right)

naw, fixboot just rewrites the boot.ini file.
