What XP CD are you trying to load? Is it the full edition or an upgrade?

Try going into the BIOS and resetting the CMOS to the "Fail-Safe" setting.

Insert a W98 floppy and use FDISK click on display partitions if any are showing delete them
put your WXP in drive and reboot you mat have to change first boot in the bios on some computers.
