Uh-oh... Hate to bring bad news but you're in trouble. You see, this file
('system' is a file without extension in config folder) is critical system
file since it holds part of HKLM registry hive, namely HKLM\System which
holds OS configuration data, hardware and services configuration etc.
Your best bet is to boot from Vista DVD as suggested. If you can't get one,
there's MSKB article on how to deal with registry corruptions that prevent
system from booting for Windows XP which I guess you can use for Vista as
well (but just in case, disclaimer - use at your own risk): http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545
Actually it could be worse than that. Say, losing 'software' file which
contains all registry settings and config for installed programs.
