First thing you want to try is putting the cd in a different computer and try booting to it. Does it boot to Windows Setup or Dr-dos? If the latter, the problem is with the cd. If the former, the reason you can't boot to it in the first system is one of the following:


It is not an original, retail XP CD or


the cd drive is damaged or


the optical drive is not the first device in the boot order or


the battery on the motherboard needs to be changed
