How can I delete Vista so that I can install XP

I tried to install Win XP on my Vista laptop but after I boot from the XP cd I get the message that 'setup cannot detect any hard drives on my computer',

Please help

Do you have a SATA hard drive? If you have you may need to insert a floppy with the SATA drivers on during the initial install, as when you press F3 i think to add the driver.

Thanks for your response. I am not sure what hard drive I have, the properties on my device manager indicates pl ata. Also the laptop does not have a floppy drive
