Bios problem

I am following your advice and installing windows XP - you were very helpful yesterday. I wanted to check that the bios was set to boot from CD but I am having difficulty getting to it - the opening screen just flashes past and I have tried pressing del. pressing escape and pressing the space bar but none of these help. It is a packard bell system running Windows XP

Put the CD in and restart the computer, if you see a prompt to "Press any key to boot from CDROM" then it is already set to do that in the BIOS. If it's the same as my HP/Compaq, press F1 on startup to ge to the BIOS.
