Computer "Hangs" during login, Insufficient disk space was noted prior to last reboot.

Gentelmen, and Ladies,
I have a client with 2 win2k servers, only one DC in an AD, The other is strict file sharing. I currently had a problem with the DC, I cannot login to the box. When a login is provided the system just hangs working out security policies. I have tried to login in safe mode, Directory Services, SM with Networking, SM with Command Prompt, but to no avail.
I guess what I need is a way to boot this puppy, login and remove some files to add space to an already filled Boot Partition. This is my first trip to this client, infact my companies first visit for support. I am finding out that this was an NT4 upgrade, but has been running for 2+ years. The client liason reports that they were having some insufficient disk space errors, but " a reboot usually stops that" says the user. So again I guess that the insufficient space on the boot partition isn't allowing the system to bring up the boot screen or hangs while applying security policies.
I would love to boot to a seperate OS and clean out the boot partition, but am having issues with loading the proper scsi/raid drivers for this system.
Have agood day all and here are some points.
