You probably have an incorrect reference to userinit.exe
in the registry. Open the registry from a networked PC,
navigate to HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/Current Version/Winlogon/
then point Userinit to the correct location of userinit.exe. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;[LN];249321
It might also be worth your while to check that your system
drive letter is correct. Use psexec.exe (www.sysinternals.com)
to start a Command Processor on the problem machine,
