Default safe mode

Windows XP. I tried to start it in safe mode and it will not start in safe mode. I get a list on the screen of drivers loaded, I think that is what it is, and then it just sits there doing nothing. Neven seen this before. Can anyone tell me what to do here. The reason I want to start in safe mode, XP is on D drive and 98 on C drive. Every time I try to start, it goes into disk checking and will lockup when checking C drive but not any other drive. I want to check C drive in safe mode if I can.
