Backup all your important files, photos, music, documents, etc. Then set your PC's BIOS to boot from the CDROM drive, insert the legitimate XP CD and restart your PC. You will get a message asking you to press any key to boot from the CD, do that and follow the onscreen instructions to format the dive and install XP.
