You sound like then, that you'll have to recompile your kernel with NTFS filesystem support enabled.

Have you tried creating an XP boot disk from another machine? That will at least get you running in Windows
If you just need access to the NTFS partition you could use NTFS for DOS... I've had pretty good luck with it.
