Windows could not start because the following file is
missing or corrupt: <Windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe.
Please re-install a copy of the above file.

This problem occures after the desktop has been turned off
for a while. Repeated boot attempts will get Windows
started and everything runs fine. Running Pentium 4, 3,2
GHz, mother board Intel D875PBZ.

Does anyone understand this problem?

Sounds like you might have a problem with the registry.
Win Xp is supposed to repair the registry on boot up.

See if this helps: "Error Message: Windows Could Not Start Because of
a Computer Disk Hardware Configuration Problem"
(http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=314477). Also read "Resources for
Troubleshooting Startup Problems in Windows XP"
