I installed Nvidia new drivers and now my system won't be able to get into safe mode.  How can I access the hard drive and copy files without being in windows?

Boot from your Vista DVD and use the Recovery Environment, which is Vista's replacement for XP's Recovery Console.  Enter the Command Prompt option of the RE, and you will be able to copy files:

"Vista SP1", or Vista WITH SP1 included?  If the latter, you're fine.  But the former won't help.  I presume you are an MSDN subscriber in order for you to be able to download those DVD iso files?
