Use BartPE to build a Windows boot CD, and access your whole drive.

This is WAY easyer. It is basically a version of XP that boots from a CD. Once you use it you will always keep it handy.

THIS DOESN'T WORK FOR ME RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE THE COMPUTER THAT CRASED IS WINDOW XP, THE OTHER COMPUTER I HAVE ACESS TO IS WINDOW 98 AND THE PE BUILDER ONLY RUNS ON XP. ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS.

Well now I think you may be down to two options:

1. Do a parrallel installation of Windows on that computer to do your maintenence, then delete the new install after you have the old one fixed.

2. Pull the disk and hook it up to a working PC with XP on it, and do your maintenence, then put it back into the other computer.

Sorry, I don't have any other options right now.
By the way, what is the problem you are trying to fix, there may be another way to approch the problem besides the recovery console.

When you get yor computer fixed, build a BartPE disk, it really is an amazing tool to have around.

You can use NTFSDOS.

It allows you to access NTFS filesystem using DOS.
