Just go to bios setup, click "delete" or "F2" when the system started to boot up, go to boot set up and select "cd rom drive" first boot, save on exit. It restart w/ the cd rom drive first.
Hope that helps you out.
You can try and tap on the F8 key when the computer is booting up and see if an optional boot menu pops up and if it does then select the CD-Rom Drive to boot from the CD, and if not then you will have to go into your BIOS setup and change the boot sequence to boot from the CD-Rom Drive first. Also, if you already have windows on the hard drive and you are using a modified boot screen you might get an error when you try to install XP.

too fast or to slow to get xp's boot sector. Had such a case under my hands few months ago. This was the solution there.
Copied xp to a separate DVD and uses this to boot system, pc will only use boot sector from this and then use installed sata drive. Once fired up you can tempoerarily remove that CD/DVD and use for tasks.

Booting up on the Windows XP CD will allow you to format your Hard Drive & install Windows. You may need to check your BIOS settings to ensure that you can boot from a CD, if you have never done that before. The motherboard CD may contain drivers for such things as video and sound or network, and these may not function at full capacity until the drivers are installed. Most drivers can also be downloaded from the manufacturers website if the CD is not available.
