I've been using Boot Camp for a while now. However, I made the mistake of not activating XP. Now I am locked in a infinite logon loop, which I don't understand, if it wasn't activated...? So I need to access the Safe Mode in XP, by pressing F8 at startup etc. But everytime I select Safe Mode, I get a few lines of MS-DOS code, then the screen goes black, and all I see is this evil-looking, flashin white bar at the top of the screen. You know, the typical MS-DOS thingie. Only I can't type anything.
What should I do? I'd rather not re-install, ive got a lot of important info on there...

iMac 3,06 GHz, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
