Are you adding XP to an Ubuntu install or do you want to erase Ubuntu to install XP? Ubuntu's boot loader may be getting in the way of the XP install. Since youre having an issue with the XP CD, try another boot disk. (Any boot disk will do--Win98, ME, 2000, another XP or Vista). If another boot disk does the same thing, look at the CD drive as the problem. Good luck.
