Configure your bios to boot from cd and do away with the floppy's. If it's a full version and not an upgrade version of xp that is.

which i presume it will be seeing as your trying to boot from floppys :-)

Rather than using 6 floppy's try boot98.exe which writes the correct files to one floppy disk click here
