First off, what exactly are you trying to accomplish?
Can you post a copy of your boot.ini here for me to see?

I went to this site to create a boot disk and it says I need to create a Boot.ini file, but I don't understand:

If not, you will start with Floppy Disk 1 and feed the machine all 6 when prompted. That will get you to a point where you can use Recovery Console.
If you have the CD, let me know...there is a better procedure using that.

Before we go any further...Have you tried starting the machine using the Safe Mode options?

I'm going to start the boot disks, but I would feel better have ing all the instrusctions up to starting my computer back up normally.

Soooooo...you're boot.ini file should look like the following:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn
Is this an OEM machine? (Compaq, Dell, HP...) There may be an option for non destructive recovery if it is.

2.For the Boot.ini. I don't even know where to start. Like how do I create the file?
3. For the Boot.ini. where you put Windows XP Home Editon should I put Windows XP Home Edition SP1?
4.If we're going to use the boot disks, could you give me instructions on what to do with the disks.
