Okay, I don't have the official Windows XP CD, because Dell didn't find it necessary to give me one of those, so I'm stuck booting to the recovery console through the six floppy disks. I've done that, and am currently in the recovery console, and I'm trying to run chkdsk /r as I am supposed to, according to Microsoft. However, it's telling me that AutoChk.exe is missing. I don't know where to get a copy of it. Also, am I even doing the right thing in trying to chkdsk? Thanks a lot!
EDIT -- I'm going to try copying the AutoChk.exe from this computer to a floppy and running from that... I'll let you know what happens.
EDIT 2 -- Okay, I think I've solved my own problem... it seems to be running the chkdsk /r command now. I'll post if anything else comes up, thanks!
