To enter Windows XP Safe Mode with Command Prompt, you must log on with an administrator account or an account that has administrator permissions.

let google be your friend.

Booting into safe mode is the same as booting to the normal mode.

If you do not have administrator access, then boot to the account that you have access to in safe mode.
