    It's probably because one of the following files is missing from c:\windows\System32:

    * Config.nt
    * Autoexec.nt
    * Command.com

    Check to see that these files are there. If not, expand them from the install CD and copy them to c:\windows\System32
    They'll be in the \I386 folder as

    Config.nt_
    autoexec.nt_
    command.co_

    From a command prompt window, type Expand /? and press Enter to get instructions for using Expand.

    If you don't have the CD, do a Search or Find on your harddisk, they could be in another folder (Repair). Copy them from there.
