NTLDR is missing AND floppy drive is broken

  1. Ok, I accidentally moved around some files and, after restarting i am now receiving:
    NTLDR is missing
    Press Ctrl+Alt +Del to restart.

    I've gone through other forums but all i find is that one can fix the problem by using a boot disk. This is where my problem arises. Years back my floppy drive broke and never got around fixing it. I'm running windows xp, floppy drive is down, how can I fix this problem?

    MY second QUESTION IS: CAN I FIX THE PROBLEM USING A CD INSTEAD OF A BOOT DISK?
