when you telnet into it type help or ?. There should be a command that will let you do a soft reboot

I dont exactly have the list of steps i need to acomplish but i need to get the register to boot to the rom system image and bypass nvram
i dont belive the soft reboot command works for this

you could also try going to cisco.com and goto their help section.

After you have successfully gone to 'enable' functions, You should be able to execute a 'reload' command to reboot the router.

Get to privileged mode (enable) then conf term
change config-reg to 0x2142 , CTRL-Z, reload
but you wont maintain your telnet connection. (shrug)

Generally speaking if you don't have physical access, should you be in the router at all?
