OK I have been a bad boy, I admit it!

Now I hope I can enlist your help to get me out of trouble and back up and running. smile.gif

I'll make a long story short.

My system:
WinXP SP2
Four drives: c,d,e,f
At the moment the built-in USB ports don't function at all (busted).
I have just installed a PCI USB card with 4+1 USB ports, but can't boot with the 4 so far.
No floppy and my CD/DVD drive is a USB drive.
So basically I don't have any fall-backs to boot with.

In my haste, when I installed Syslinux on f:, I wiped out the MBR!

Now when my system boots, it boots to f: (PING) and I don't know how to fix the mbr so I can get back to WinXP on c:.

If anyone can get me out of this jam I would REALLY appreciate it!
