this is for xp, but its similar on 2000 and on vista.
insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.
1.Whenthe Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen,press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.
ifnot then the computer is not set to start up from a cd, you can eitherenter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you powerup the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press inorder to enter boot menu or bios, it will very likely be button F12 or similar, it should say on the screen when you power on.
if it doesn't, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.
after that you should be able to start from the cd and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)
here's some info on how to work the bios: http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php
Repeat step 1 when you have changed the boot order.

5.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.
