In Windows XP there is a third box in the logon screen to select Domain or Local Machine.

Are you selecting the Local Machine?  You may be able to login have used the emergency Boot CD and you can always try it again. You are probably trying to log in to the Domain.

You have to reinstall XP.  Assuming you have the CD, there is a repair option that you should take.
