The w32time error is telling you that you do not have a sntp server configured.If you are on a network most routers are also sntp servers. The command: nettime /setsntp servername sets the timeserver. If you are not on the network you can set your system time and ignore this error.
The second error: from Microsoft knowledge base:
Event Message 3101: Unable to Read IO control Information from NBT Device

The information in this article applies to:
Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional

SYMPTOMS
When you use a Windows 2000-based computer, the following error may be logged in the Application event log after every reboot:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: perfctrs
Event Category: None
Event I 3101
Date: boot_date
Time: boot_time
User: N/A
Computer: SYSTEM
Description: Unable to read IO control information from NBT device.

CAUSE
This behavior can occur if the Windows 2000 Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) performance counters (Perfctrs.dll) are attempting to extract input/output (I/O) control information from a network device, but no network device (network adapter, modem, and so on) is present.

This problem can also occur if the performance counters attempt to extract I/O control information, but the network stack has not completed loading. This is a timing issue and does not necessarily indicate a problem.

RESOLUTION
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows 2000. For additional information, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Q260910 How to Obtain the Latest Windows 2000 Service Pack

NOTE : You can also install the Microsoft Loopback adapter on the computer to try and resolve this behavior.
STATUS
This problem was first corrected in Windows 2000 Service Pack 2.

Hi,

re: The second message : The complete above article is available at...

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q257760

(remove spaces from the above URL)

I only mention this because the previous poster didn't add the alternative fix - which is to disable to counters if you dont need them.

I'll paste it here...

To resolve this behavior, disable the TCP/IP performance counters:
Run the Exctrlst.exe utility from the Microsoft Windows 2000 Resource Kit.

For information about the Windows 2000 Resource Kit, view the following Microsoft Web site:


http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/library/resources/reskit/
Locate and click the following extensible performance counter entry in the list:


TCPIP Perfctrs.dll
Click to clear the Performance counters enabled check box only for that counter.


Quit the utility, and then restart the computer.


After you restart the computer, the event should not appear. This resolution has no effect on computer performance or usability, even if networking is enabled in the future.
