load needed dlls for kernel

Specs: Windows XP
So I folllowed the instrucstions provided below. I will state what happened in italics:
Boot your system from the Windows XP Cdrom and choose to repair your system which will put you in the "Recovery Console
" mode.
I had to force my BIOS to read the CD Rom drive first. Until I did that, the system would run in a continuous reboot loop always ending with the same error.
Now make the following steps:
CHKDSK (which will fix the error(s) on your disk)
I had to type CHKDSK /p to force the check disk because the computer initially stated that everything was okay. It did say that there was one or more errors after the forced command
BOOTCFG /rebuild (you will rebuild your boot configuration now, just give enters when it asked extra info).
The system asked a few questions but if I just hit return on the first one, it would go back to the windows prompt.It almost appeared that I was setting up a new boot sequence or partition if you will
FIXBOOT (to fix your current bootsector)
This appeared to be again, settig up something new, not fixing exsiting errors.
FIXMBR (to fix your current master boot record).
This appeared to be again, settig up something new, not fixing exsiting errors.
EXIT (leaves the recovery console and reboots your system).

After booting, it appeared that I had three choices to boot from: one was a blank line (from just hitting enter; the second was the number 1 because I was typing 1 for the number they had listed as the record for Windows XP; and Windows XP, which I assume was the original.

When it rebooted, I received an error specific to ntoskrnl.exe is corrupted or gone so I typed expand d:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ c"\windows\system32 and then selected to overwrite the file

After all this, I am still at the same spot but it appears I have added a few other boot paths. At this point, if a full reinstall is necessary that is okay, I just want to be able to recover files off my harddrive. Can I do this with a thumb drive and control it via DOS?

No, it doesn't matter, you said you wanted to save files from your hard drive.

A live cd, like Knoppix should allow you to copy files to a usb drive.

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.
