Thank you both HappyShiner and Hamluis.
I will try the boot floppy idea, tho' that will involve me lining up a friend whose computer is working to produce these. If that fails, I might just bite the bullet and take the wretched thing to a computer store.
Will post back in a week or so. Thanks for bearing with me.

To simplify things a bit, you may find creating this boot disk easier:
If we can get you booted up from the floppy.....and get you logged in....then putting the I386 folder on C:\ with the relevant registry entry will allow us to repair damaged files. but we need to get you booted up.
