I have a friend with a 2000 f250. Its a 6 speed, 4wd, reg cab. This morning he went out and went to start it and it just cranked over and over. it wouldnt even stumble. Upon further investigation, he found a wire behind the fuel filter housing that is burned. He says the truck sounds like its not getting and fuel. anyone have any similar problems?

i don't know what that wire is, but if it's burnt you should look into that. it could be hazardous for you, and your rig.

might be the camshaft position sensor if the tach doesnt move when you crank it

If the wire to the fuel bowl is burned then it is very likley a short circuited fuel bowl heater which I am told is on the same fuse as the PCM and will keep the truck from starting. Unplug the wire, replace fuse if blown and attempt to start. If that is not working then I am jumping on the CPS band wagon!

that wire is part of a bundle of 3 wires, 2 go to the fuel bowl heater, the 3rd goes to the fuel pressure sensor on the side of the fuel bowl. if the computer isn't getting a signal from that sensor, the engine won't start. i know this cuz i had it happened to me a few months back.
