\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEMYou can attempt to repair this file by starting windows setup using the original setup CD-ROM. Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair" error.

I used microsoft recommanded steps from this article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545.
When I reached the step "copy c:\windows\repair\system c:\windows\system32\config\system window can not find system folder under the repair folder! I checked another pc which is exactly os and found out there is just  no system folder under the reair folder ! What shall I do? I am stuck now. By the way the pc is running windows xp professional sp3 os.

Help please! Thank you!!
