Somehow my WinXP got messed up and I need to reinstall it. When I put in my WinXP CD and tried to boot from it, it just gave me a message "Press A key to Reboot." I went into my BIOS and made sure that the boot order was CD, floppy, HD. I tried using my roommates CD and I got the same problem. I then updated my BIOS wondering if something got messed up with it and I still have the same problem.

Try cd, hd. When the cd first starts to boot (after the bios screen} hit f2 a couple of times to give it a kick in the tool.
Spike's advice: Backup your data routinely.
