NTLDR is the NT loader.You can try a repair from the windows install cd.

its a windows pro. but i just used it on a family members computer and it worked. So if i was to use the repair on the windows cd it mit fix it but what about the floppy drive. that thing does work and its band new. It reads but you like have to force it to read those.

if you can bring up the Recovery Console by booting the XP Cd, then with the floppy in hand, (with the NTDLR file on it) just copy it from the floppy to C:\
