Netbook unable to start

  scarecrow-bill 15:56 23 Nov 2010

I have a dell netbook that will not boot,
on start up a message appears saying:

file missing or corrupt:
Windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe

How do I re-install a copy of this file I have no disks for this machine but I do have a copy of windows xp (used on another machine).

Could I use this disk and if so how?
(the licence key for the netbook is unreadable as the sticker is on the bottom of the machine and has become worn).
