Cisco Catalyst 3500XL Series config.text corrupted !!!!!

I'm currently dealing with two Cisco Catalyst 3500 XL Series. While configuring it using Hyperterminal via console port, I somehow play around with the flash.

The "config.text" get corrupted. It became a "directory" instead !!!!
(I really wonder how a file can became a dir ???)

I tried out some way to restore the original setting. But I am quite new to it and don't really know how to do that !!!

Can any expert pls kindly suggest any way to solve my problem ? 10 Q
(^o_o^)

Only one of the 3500's config file got corrupted.
The other one is still ok !

For the one with the corrupted config file, it can never start up properly
(keep on looping before cannot load the correct config file) !!!

Pls help !!!

I've finally manage to load a new IOS onto the 3500XL using Xmodem.

Anyway, hope to consult you if I encounter any other problems next time.
