My system configuration has been lost. When I sign in I cannot even get to the XP screen, the machine locks up.

Boot into safe mode by tapping the F8 key, select the option "best last known start that worked" reboot. If no go you will have to boot with Windows CD in and select reload Windows WITHOUT FORMATTING, this will reload Win and save all files EXCEPT you will have to reload all programs.

Windows XP operating system does not load.

You need to repair your windows xp installation.
Insert the xp install cd and power off - then power on your pc.
If the screen says "press any key to boot from cd" then do that.
It takes a while until you get to choose options.
Choose the repair previous installation option by pressing the R key when prompted.
Follow the instructions on the screen and you should be fine.

IBM T22 Thinkpad won't boot up - not even in safe mode

either you have a virus or a corrupted dll file.
eitherway, beside create a bootable CD or Floppy disk, and try to fix from there, thats' time a money.
the next best thing, is to reinsall the operating system.
the other option is get a new hard drive and install the operating system on that so you can preserve the data you have on the old one.
