What is SYS.DAT?

Question

I can't get my computer to run since I deleted SYS.DAT. it will go to normal mode or safe mode but only a blank screen. I can see my prgram files and documents when it searches for a driver for the disc drive but it can't find that either. Please let me know if you can help.
