Thanks for those bootsectors. :) 

One quick question -- I have a Windows XP startup disk, and since that
startup disk can be used to invoke ntldr and show the usual boot options
menu, is it possible that I can use whatever bootsectors are there on
the floppy and write those to my C: drive? Infact, I just tried that
before writing this post (though I didn't use the BOOTSECT command, I
used the linux 'dd' command (which does a similar task I believe)) ...
but things didn't work. This kind of got me apprehensive, and so I
thought I'd figure what went wrong before applying your 2000 or 2003

Thanks again,

Rakhesh, here's another one - my Windows 2003 bootsector I extracted
"BOOTSECT 0 -P -R BSW2K3.BIN" - may it work for you. Write it using 
"BOOTSECT 0 -P -W BSW2K3.BIN". Good luck!
