Disable bad device driver during WindowsXP bootup

Disable bad device driver during WindowsXP bootup

"My son tried to install an old Windows98 program and it seems to have attempted to install an older device driver. We can no longer boot into the machine. Safe mode doesn't work and unfortunately there are no known restore points.
What are some suggestions for fixing this problem without losing our current data (photos, movies, etc)???"
