For some reason a Win2k machaine is now not booting, it will come up with raspptp.sys could not be loaded.
This just happened overnight with no h/w upgrade or s/w upgrades.
Unfortuneatly this machine has to run Win2k for one app.
I can boot in safe mode without network support only otherwise it bluescreen all the way.

Any Ideas?

Just a thought, here.
Can you disable your network card and see if the machine will boot?
From the Desktop. right-click My Computer.
Select "Properties" from menu.
Click "Hardware" tab.
Click "Device Manager" button.
Locate "Network adapters" on the list and click to open the + box at its left.
Right click the device and choose "Disable" from the menu.
Close and reboot.

If this works, then you may have a bad network card.
