I've never heard of hiren's before, so a quick search revealed it is a bootable cd with heaps of tools on it. What are you trying to get it to do?
By the looks of it, you don't need to install it, you just boot your computer with the cd and use it that way...

I restarted my computer one day and it boots up and says the following
windows/system32/config/system is corrupted or the files are missing. please put in the original windows disc(xp pro) and push "r"
I dont have my old windows cd so i was told to find a ntfs dos pro, which is part of hiren's 9.1...The file is an .iso file so i used my program to burn it to a blank c.d on my computer and put it into my broken one...
so i put it in my broken one(the disk w/ hirens on it) and it comes up with alot of files that can be accessible but i dont know which to run....the hyper above are all the options i have on the particular disk...
my goal is to get my computer up and running again without losing data on my old computer..i figured that this ntfs dos pro would re-instal the corrupt or missing file but until now i had a clue what to do...now i have a bunch of commands from this disk and no idea how to fix my problem..

This is a live cd. This means that you can put it in your computer and it will boot from it. I want you to do this in your computer that isn't starting. As soon as you start the computer, enter the BIOS and ensure that your cd drive is set to boot before your hard drive. The menu should be called something like "Boot Device Priority", just have a quick hunt and you should find it. That way, your computer will check for a bootable cd, and if it doesn't find one, then it looks on your hard drive (and finds XP and loads it).
Then put your recovery console cd that you just burned into the cd drive that you made to boot before the hard drive. Then you save and exit the BIOS, your computer should restart to get your new settings working, and because you've put the cd in, then it will boot of it instead of your hard drive. After this, you should be able to follow tuxmaster's instructions back up top.
Any more problems or questions, just post before going ahead, we're happy to help.
