Toshiba problem

On boot go into your BIOS and set your CD/DVD ROM drive to first in the boot order options, then with the CD/DVD in the drive reboot your computer and wait for a prompt to "Press any key to boot to this CD" and do so (you'll only have a couple of seconds so be ready or reboot again) and you then will be taken through the loading of files until you get to your partition/install screen options, where you'll delete the partition that your OS is on, then create a new one and then format that partition and install XP on it.

Installing WIN XP SP2 in aToshiba Satellite A205-S7459 Vista original

you need to go at and get a special driver. You need to check under support and drivers for your model.

What you do is you get the driver (depends if you a floppy otherwise burn the drive on a cd)

From Bios make the computer boot the computer from CD/DVD rom and then you need to pay attention when on the bottom of the screen it will say hit f6 if you have to install the special driver and then you can continue installation of windows.

My dvd rw is not detected

When installing SP2 version, you possibly corrupted the drivers for the DVD. It is possible there are different drivers for the DVD between XP and XP (sp2). Go to the laptop mfg website and download the newest drivers for the DVD.
