Stuck in Ghost virtual partition, can't boot to Windows any more

I used Ghost 2003 from witin Windows to perform a system backup (C drive of Win 2000 server). Alas, the system disk is a raid 1 disk array (mirroring), which happens to be unsupported.
When booted into pc-dos, ghost simply hangs. The utility to get back into windows, ghreboot, also hangs. A Partition Magic boot floppy reports partition table error #113. Looks like Ghost screwed up things thoroughly.

Result: no way to boot up my server, users screaming to access their data.

Question: how can i get rid of this virtual partition and reboot my server?
This is very urgent, I NEED to get that server back up again ASAP !!!!
