There are a couple of things that you can try.

First, if this is NT 4.0 and you have a new enough BIOS, you should be able
to boot from the CD and proceed with setup and choose repair.

Second, if you have access to a win98 boot floppy, it will load the proper
CD-ROM drivers so that you can run "WINNT /b" on the NT CD-ROM and proceed
with the repair.

Third, you can go to http://www.sysinternals.com/erdcmndr.htm.  This allow
you to build a boot floppy that will allow you to get access to your hard
drive through a command prompt.  The free version only lets you look, you
have to buy it in order to change/replace any files.

All these steps assume you are using NTFS as you file system... if you are
useing FAT, just find a dos boot floppy.

The third option assumes you will be able to manualy find out what is wrong
and replace/fix the files that are broken.

Hope this was helpful.

David.
