As long as you have the PGP WDE passphrase, you can either use the WDE Recovery CD, or attach the disk to another machine with PGP installed.  If you are in a PGP Universal managed setting, you may have the option of using a WDRT.  This Knowledge Base Article describes another possible option.

I saw this, but wasn't sure if it was what I needed. I will try it, thank you.
