1. Rip out the hard drive in the screwed up computer and put it into another so you can edit the boot.ini.
2. Create a Bartís PE Builder boot CD ( http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/ )and use that to edit the boot.ini. I like to keep this boot CD around for just such problems.
Best of luck and let us know how it goes.
