One of my database is refusing to be started on Windows 2000,
complaining a parameter value in SP file is invalid.  I tried to
modify the parameter value using "alter system set xxxx=xxxx
scope=spfile", but of course, it refuses to update it saying database
is not up.  So basically, I am stuck.  What should I do to change this
value in SPFILE so that I can open it?  Thank you in advance.
