I shy away from the bootcfg option in Recovery Console as it's syntax and output is confusing to me. I've used it several times with no adverse effects tho'.
As for fixmbr, it's one of the few commands left in Recovery Console that address a failure to boot. I'd suspect that it won't do anything for you tho' - as you're able to boot up to the agp440.sys file already (which implies that the disk booted up enough to load the file system drivers so it could access all the stuff before agp440.sys).
If it were me, I'd skip to the repair installation. Reading the link that I provided will give you a lot more information about the repair install, and will let you know where you're headed before you actually start it. http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm
The biggest drawback with the repair installation is the need to sit through Windows Updates again - as I recall, even with SP2 you've still got around 96 updates to sit through in order to get current.
EDIT: After some further thought on this issue, I suspect that the first step should be to perform a repair install according to the link above. Read the instructions carefully and ask questions before doing it. The repair install should at least make the system bootable.
Once bootable, the first priority should be to recover your data to removable media (a removable hard drive, flash drive, or CD/DVD's).
In the event that you cannot access the Windows installation after performing the repair installation - I'd suggest using either a Live Linux distro, a BartPE disk, or a copy of the Ultimate Boot CD to recover your data to recoverable media. The point here is that once the data is recovered - everything else can be rebuilt (if needed).
