You either need to get hold of an XP disk - any one should do, as all you want is to get to the recovery console. Failing that, a live linux disk - Ubuntu for example, will let you access your XP installation and replace the missing file from the repair folder.

If you can get an XP disk, then the repair process is HERE. If you go the live linux route then that page also shows you the location of the file(s) that you need,
