ok hook up monitor keyboard and mouse

set your cd drive to 1st boot device in your bios
turn machine on put your xp cd into the drive restart the machine when post is complete a message will com up boot from cd following that another mesaage press any key to boot from cd at this point hit a key and then follow the on screen instructions

(note you will need to make sure usb is enabled in the bios for the keyboard to function )

Take the CD out of the drive and reboot

Is there a floppy disk in the floppy drive?
That's usually what that message is about.
