If you do not have a windows cd, download RC.iso from the following link:
You need to burn this image to a CD and boot your computer with it--this is different than burning a file to a CD. If you do not know how to burn an ISO image, then download the following program to another Windows XP machine, install it.
After installation, right click the RC.iso file you downloaded above and choose COPY IMAGE TO CD.
Then reboot your PC with that CD in the CD-ROM drive.
This will give you a recovery console to use to run
at a command prompt.

Did follow gerryf's suggestion on burning the ISO image to cd? (Post #2) Having not created the cd correctly would yeild the results you describe.

If you have a floppy drive, you can also install the Recovery Console using the XP start up disk set. They can be downloaded from the microsoft site.
If you have XP Home download HERE
or XP Home SP2 HERE
If you have XP Pro download HERE
or XP Pro SP2 HERE
Then follow the instructions HERE to run the recovery console (startup disk procedure is about halfway down the page). Use the chkdsk /r command.
