Ok, lets go back a bit...the preferred method to install XP, is to boot off of the installation CD. If your computer does not boot off of the CD, you can go into the BIOS and change the boot order so that your CD drive is the first bootable drive.
I can help you with that, but you need to answer a couple of questions...
What is the make/model of your computer?
What version of XP are you installing, home or professional?
Is this a fresh install?(nothing on the hard drive now..or needed)
There are various links on the web that will walk you through an XP installation.
One of them can be found here:http://www.theeldergeek.com/xp_pro_install_-_graphic.htm
