Try the Last Known Good menu to get into the OS...if you can get into the OS this way, immediately back-up to tape or some other media, and then GHOST the drive to a non-failing disk.

Good luck.

We found out what the problem was. We have 6 hard drives hooked up in a Raid 1 configuration. We have three arrays each containing 2 hard drives. The 2nd HD on the 3Rd array was causing the problems. It turns out it was corrupt and needs to be replaced. Once we unplugged this HD from the RAID array, we were able to boot up.

In case you ever are unable to boot-up the server and your are in desperate need of your data, you can always install another copy of NT. Once you do this you should have access to your data.
