Laptop HDD has died

Can anyone advise me how to get the hard drive out of an old Compaq Evo N400c?

It is not booting at all now, with an error message, something like:

"Windows 2000 cannot start because the file C:\root\system32\ntoskrnl.exe is missing or corrupted."

I have just bought another hard drive for it but don't know where to start?

Try copying a copy of ntoskrnl.exe from your original OS cd if you still have before you try anything.

Thanks DisSse. Have downloaded all of that.

Gordon999, can't copy anything to it as it doesn't get far enough to do that, but thanks.
