Boot with the XP pro CD and choose a custom install and then direct it towards the disk you want it on. It is pretty straighforward.

Put the XP Pro CD into the machine and restart; it should pick up the fact that the CD is there and the computer will start using the CD rather than the hard disk.

It will then give you a list of options - one of which will be to start the installation process.
