how do i do to copy i386 content to repair my xp windows/system32 directory
Boot computer from Cd.
Read all on-screen instructions.
Do not format drive, leave current file system intact.
Do not use the repair console.
Do an automatic repair.
When computer re-boots itself, do not press any key to continue, or you will start over from scratch.
Computer will be busy for awhile, and will re-boot itself as needed, ending with a repaired Windows.
