My resolution is to boot off of a Windows XP CD and do a repair.. Make sure that in your BIOS boot order, CD is chosen first. Then boot off of a Win XP CD.. when everything is loaded, hit R for repair. Then enter your administrator password.. (blank if you don't remember entering one). Type in "chkdsk /p", then type "fixboot". Type "Y" at the prompt for YES. Type "exit" and if all is well, the system will boot into Windows.
