If you have a boot floppy you could load the file onto it and copy it to the windows folder. You can use the machine you're on now to view the contents of the .cab files and look for the system.ini, if it isn't a file made up during installation. Then copy it to the boot floppy. When you put the floppy in and boot, at the prompt type in

copy A:\system.ini C:\windows

and Enter. It should say one file copied. Hope that helps.
