Problem is that I cannot boot into windows...am getting a message the NTDLR ( or something ) is missing.

Anyone that you know who has a full copy of Win XP should be able to run the Recovery Console fom the CD and use it to replace any lost system files such as NTDLR.

If you have a floppy drive on the computer you can always copy NTLDR file to a floppy from another computer, insert the floppy and it will then boot.
