Here is what I found on the MS knowledge base that had something to do with a corrupt sql file.


What do I do if the registry entries related to SQL Server 2000 are corrupted?

A. Information related to SQL Server 2000 setup and minimal configuration information is stored under the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server

You may encounter problems using SQL Server 2000 if the information stored here is tampered with or corrupted. You can use the Registry Rebuild option to restore this information in the registry. To rebuild the SQL Server registry entries, follow these steps:
Insert the SQL Server 2000 CD in your CD-ROM drive. If the CD does not run automatically, double-click Autorun.exe in the root folder of the CD.
Select SQL Server 2000 Components, select Install Database Server, and then click Next at the Welcome screen of the SQL Server Installation Wizard.
In the Computer Name dialog box, click Next.
In the Installation Selection dialog box, click Advanced options. In the Advanced Options dialog box, click Registry Rebuild, and then click Next.
A message informs you that Setup rebuilds the registry based on information you supply in the subsequent screens.

CAUTION: The setup options you enter must be the same choices that you entered during the initial installation. If you do not know, or are unsure of, this information, do not use this registry rebuild process. Instead, you must uninstall and reinstall SQL Server to restore the registry.
To prepare for the registry rebuild, enter the same information and options that you entered during the initial installation of SQL Server in the setup screens as they appear. When you have finished, the registry rebuild will occur.

NOTE: Rebuilding the registry includes recopying external components such as MDAC and MS DTC.
