Startup Hanging

My windows XP machine hangs at startup. I get beyond the windows XP logo
splash screen, but it hangs before I get to the user accounts screen. I've
tried booting my machine via the CD, but I don't want to overwrite my
previous setup. I would like to be able to boot up and find out what the
problem is. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Have you tried starting in SafeMode???..........hit F8 during boot up.
A series of Sys files will show on screen
post back at which file it gets stuck on
