How can I run chkdsk (or something similar to fix my XP computer) from UBCD 4.1.1?

My work computer runs XP Pro and it after getting stuck in the middle of defragmenting it has refused to boot all day. Our IT help desk said that if I can "boot to disk" and "get a command prompt" I can run "chkdsk /fix /r" and that will maybe fix the issue.
I downloaded and burned an iso of UBCD 4.1.1 from my home computer, and I can get the menu when I start up my work computer. But there are lots of options there that I don't understand and "get a command prompt" is unfortunately not one.
Is there a way to run chkdsk from the UBCD menu? If not, is there something that I can run from that menu that will try to fix my computer? Degree of Difficulty: I am good at following directions but I am only marginally clever with computers.
