Can I put a hard disk in another XP PC and edit the registry?

Because of a virus, I've made a change in the registry. Now I can log in but I'm immediately logged out. I would like to put the hard disk in another XP PC and edit the registry. How can I do that?
There are a couple of ways to do this. One is with a product like ERD Commander 2000 ( http://www.purenetworking.net/Products/ERDCommander/), which lets you edit the registry directly without booting into a second copy of Windows. Another option is to perform a repair installation (see http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm for full details on how to do this).
