Try some punctuation please :-)

Anyway, do you have the XP CD to boot with? If so, try it and you may be able to reinstall windows.

Will it go to Safe Mode? if it will you could try System Restore. Safe modekeep pressing F8 as computer starts, Top of list

you need to start the machine from somewhere other than the hdd. Like a floppy, or a bootable cd.

But if you can get to the startup menu then another option to try is the last known good configeration option.
