I have a 4.3GB HD with NTFS on it. The boot sector is corrupt. How can I restore it or create a new one that will enable me access to the HD? Is there a utility that can accomplish that?

Thanks

If it's just the boot sector, you should be able to boot the system with the NT setup/boot diskette (DISK #1), and then choose the REPAIR Existing NT installation option.  If more of the NTFS file system is destroyed, you may not be able to recover it at all and will have to reformat.
