    If your using XP

    Put the XP CD in the drive,set BIOS to boot from CD.

    Boot to the recovery console as described HERE

    At the command prompt type expand d:\i386\command.nt_ c:\windows\system32\command.nt as HERE

    Assuming the main drive is c and the CD drive is d.

    For 98 -

    Put 98 CD in drive.At a prompt type expand d:\i386\command.co_ c:\windows\system32\

    That`s the theory.Keep fiddling `til it works.
