Hi hanccocka, and thank you for your help...
i fixed the problem must of it based on this site, but not at all,
actually i was bypassing this screen with this site files and tools
but was not able to fix it acording with the way they explained there.
the point is that i was able to fix it and that what matter the must. :-)
what i meant was, that i knew this site from long time ago, i had their
tools in a CD and also in a floppy but i was paying atention very well. :-)

Here is how i fix it, i when to C:\ and i saw there was none of following files...

CONFIG.sys
IO.sys
MSDOS.sys

so since those files were not there i copied a set of those files from my other XP
and trafer them to that broken Windows XP PC and Bingo! it did work, but i would
like to mention that just by adding the boot.ini and the other files suggested by this
site, that didn't work for me, honest.

But i am glad i was able to fix the problem.

Thank you again hanccocka
