It sounds as if your restore partition has become corrupted. You vcan Contact Dell and order a restore disk
As far as trying to Install from Install CD goes. Well Win XP does NOT recognize SATA drives natively. You have to install the sata drivers to get them to appear. You can download them from the link below.

If you don't have a floppy drive post back here and we'll try to see if we can get the drivers in there another way.
