i recommend a stong mixture of jack daniels and good cigars.

now, tell me that you have flash cards installed and that you can recover.  
not sure if that model has them or not, but i know that my 1600's did.  
did you check the compatability matrix to see if they ios is compatible 
with your models and memory configuration?  can you get to an enabled 
prompt?  i would recommend running erase and then starting from scratch.  
you'll lose your configuration but you have it backed up.  right?  
right???  ;)
