Hi there
The disk on which the tempdb (SQL2000) is located is unstable. How do I move the TEMPDB to another location? OR alternatively provide a startup parameter to allow SQL server to startup creating tempdb in a specific location?
Any help appreciated.

There is a KnowledgeBase article on this very topic. Here you go:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q224071

It has how to move any of the databases, whether user or system. For tempdb, basically it's as simple as a couple of ALTER DATABASE commands and a stop and restart.
