IBM Serverguide will most likely get you going again. Go this link:
http://www-947.ibm.com/systems/support/supportsite.wss/docdisplay?lndocid=SERV-GUIDE&brandind=5000008. You can download the ISO image for the version of Serverguide that will let you configure your system. If you have a Xseries 360 version 7.2.03 should work.

I hope this helps. Good luck!
