    Argh, I got that error too when I was at a LAN (about a month ago) I fiddled with it a bit but in the end I just ripped my hard drive out, stuck it in another computer, copied my stuff off and reformatted (maybe if I didnt have that luxury I would've tried to fix it...)
    hehe, anyway you could try booting off your XP CD (into recovery console etc), or maybe "Repair" the install.
