Registry retore from boot disk?

I would like to try to restore a prior version of my registry (even though windows says it is fine) before I throw in the towell and re-load windows altogether (all kinds of errors and no system restore. can't get into control panel from start menu, though I can from my computer). Is there a way to chose which date to use when you use the boot disk, and if so what is the command?

Boot from the floppy boot disk that you should have made. You can make one yourself and not have to go anywhere to get one.

type "scanreg.exe /restore" at the DOS prompt and pick out which backup to restore from.
