Default windows xp startup options

A friend of mine just deleted a couple of his registery files, he says that he is getting the windows picture but then nothing else happens.
I was wondering is he could get nto safe mode by getting the menu up. restoring to a previous restore point.

is it possible?

how does one get to the safe mode in windows xp? is it F4? and then the option?
