Are you still out there?

I just have a problem as I cannot open windows in safe mode. It tells me I am missing "Windows\System32\Config\System" and I have to start Windows with the reinstall cd.

I installed the XP setup cd and followed instructions. At disk prompt I typed cd \
cd windows\system32\config
ren system system.bak
exit. I selected r for repair, the line number for the O/S, selected enter to bypass the password and at disk prompt I typed:
cd \
cd system~1\_resto~1\
the message said it could not find the file directory. I got a list of file names but nothing that said RP# or anything about restore point .
