I tried to install Windows 2000 SP4 and got the following 
error message-

Service Pack 4 Setup Error:
The core system file (kernel) used to start this computer
is not a Microsoft Windows file. The Service Pack will not
be installed. For more information, see Knowledge Base
article at http://support.microsoft.com.

I searched the Knowledge Base and couldn't find anything
relating to this error message.

Does anyone have an idea what might be going on here? 
I am running an OEM version of W2000 Pro/SP1.
I have previously installed SPs 2 and 3 with no problems.
