OK, so, you're goal is no longer to revive this system and just get files? How much space is on the harddrive?
This is what I would do in your case. IF YOU HAVE A WINDOWS CD
If you do not have a windows CD, but a recover cd, STOP, post back
Get a windows98 boot disk and start
At the a:\>, type
rename c:\windows c:\bakwin (saves windows directory)
rename c:\progra~1 c:\bakpf ( saves program files)
rename c:\mydocu~1 c:\bakmd (saves my documents if this was a single user system, otherwise your profile is saved in the windows directory)
rename autoexec.bat autoexec.bak
rename config.sys config.bak
rename msdos.sys, msdos.bak
rename command.com command.bak

That will allow the user to restore an automatically backed-up registry.
I'm posting this in case someone else finds this thread through Google like I did.
[Note that a somewhat different approach is required for XP.]
