That's what i had to do. The same thing happened to me a while ago. Windows would boot, but restart before the login screen would ever pop up. I tried everything, from booting in safe mode, debug mode, command prompt, you name it. I eventually just had to ghost it and start from scratch, losing all my files and whatnot.
To be on the safe side I personally would re-install xp from scratch after asking setup to first delete the C partition. Then setup will give you the option to install xp on the 'unallocated space' which it will then create a new C partition for, then it will format it, then it will begin installing xp. Sounds daunting perhaps, but it's quite straightforward and you'll know exactly how to re-install next time. I suggest a full re-install to eradicate any viruses or other nasties which may currently be on C drive, and since you can't get into Windows I think it's the quickest way to restore it to a working PC again.
