Sounds like your bootsector got overwritten with something. What did you do prior to this happening?

You can get your bootmenu back by booting with the Windows 2000 CD, then at the first option go for the Repair Console. In there you type fixboot followed by Enter. If you then type Exit {Enter}, you will reboot and if all is well, your bootmenu is back. If it isn't, then boot again with the Windows 2000 CD and do a repair install of Windows 2000. That will definitely put the bootmenu back.

The thing is, you will need to reinstall all Service Pack 4 and all further updates to get Windows 2000 running as it was though.
