Question about PC Laptops
When reinstalling Win XP Pro on a Toshiba Tecra A2. At the EULA page the
F8=I agree or ECS=I do not agree, the F8 key does not respond.
Check for an F Lock key on your keyboard.
By pressing it, it should activate your F Keys and F8 should work as advertised.

Press fn+F8 buttons simultaneously it will work. Had a similar issue with Dell Inspiron nSeries, n it worked.

Sounds like the keyboard mapping on your laptop is non-standard in some way, and so the installer is waiting for F8 coming from a different key. Try the other function keys and work your way around the keyboard until you find what F8 is mapped to.
It is also possible you have a bad keyboard, but this is pretty rare.
