Default need to borrow favor...

Posted in OT, but little response so thought I'd try here.

My Dell desktop (2001), which is essentially used as just a print server and occasional POA, came up with a error message rendering my 2 wireless printers useless as the Dell wont boot into Windows.

It say's the following file is corrupt or missing and must be re-installed:

<windows root>\system32\ntoskral.exe.

I cannot find my OS disks (XP Pro) that came with the Dell, likely misplaced or lost during my recent move.

Does anyone have XP Pro disks I can borrow to get my computer hopefully booted back up so I can get my stuff off it?

For the record, I have a wireless home network, running 2 printers, 3 laptops and the hardwired Dell. I still need to address the wireless printing issue as being hardwired is not a solution for me, but I'll deal with that later.

Thanks

I have Dell XP Pro OS with service pack2 and driver discs that came with my Dell XPS laptop. I can stick them in the mail for you if you are stuck.
