I dont have a floppy drive to do the boot disk thing Microsoft recommends.
I was able to boot from a Knoppix cd (Linnux, I think ),.. but thats about it.
Any suggestions before I lose everything??

Take a look at this link and follow along with what it says. You said you don't have the windows XP CD, so download the Recovery Console CD image from HERE and burn it to a CD and boot off of it to get to the recovery console.
If you can't burn the file to a CD, then you are just going to have to wait until you can get/borrow an XP CD from someone so that you can do what is suggested in the first link I posted in this reply.
You type that in after you have logged into your windows installation in the recovery console using either your XP CD or the recovery console CD. Once you are at the c:\WINDOWS prompt.
I suggest you do what it says about creating the .txt file by copying and pasting the code into notepad and saving it as regcopy1.txt and putting it on a floppy disk and typing batch regcopy1.txt when you are in the Recovery Console.
Sorry for the delay in responding but I was at work earlier and we got busy and the had an hour drive home. Normally I'm much faster in replying.
Just type the text carefully and double check it before you hit ENTER. Not much else I can tell ya to do.
Now when I type the first line,.. I get "the system cannot find the file specified".
Thanks,.. I'll give it a try and post any error messages I receive...
What was the first line you typed?
Sorry Chaze, but I was really busy during the holiday weekend and haven't been able to be on here as much as I would of liked. Have you tried creating the txt file and running the batch command on it in the Recovery Console? Copy & Paste the text to notepade, don't do it by hand, so you are sure there are no typos.
