Problems with using recovery disks on my T42 upon reboot

I had an issue (blue screen) with my T42 and decided to return my system to the orginal configuration using the recovery disks.  I've been able to load the disks, however, the problem is that after completing and rebooting, the system goes back to the Rescue and Recovery screen and not Lotus window.  Rescue and Recovery must be on my hard drive because I had removed all disks from my disc drive.  Anyone know how I can get back the windows screen?

Thanks Don!  Do you know if I need to click on "continue" in the Rescue and Recovery screen on the reboot or if the process will continue automatically?  I don't see the hard drive light flickering

On my T61 there's a 10-second countdown displayed, and then it reboots automatically unless I click on "cancel."  If you don't see the countdown, just click on "continue."

Much thanks Don!  It worked!  I never otherwise would have thought to wait so long.
