Hopefully you have the installation cds or floppies for the computer, or a recovery cd. Using them, you can boot the computer from the cd into the recovery console, which will allow you to repair the system files.
It would also be a good idea to run chkdsk.
If you don't have the media, we'll need the ThinkPad model number to see if they're available, or you'll have to find another windows 2000 set to borrow to repair the system.
Finally, please see this article to guide you in some needed maintenance that may prevent this from happening in the future.
