I assume your trying to install windows xp on a somewhat newer computer. This will not work without some tweaking. The reason you are getting this error is due to the fact your computer most likely has a SATA drive as opposed to an IDE. Windows XP does not natively support SATA drives.
First thing you can try is go into your BIOS and change your hard drive to emulate IDE support (To get to BIOS, while the computer is booting you will need to press the key is asks for to enter setup/BIOS usually F1 F2 F10 or del)
Here's a video I found on youtube that explains it, you want yours set to IDE. After this is set, XP should install just fine.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVXXopxa7hg
The other option is to build a slipstream XP disc and integrate sata drivers into it so that you can install XP on a computer with sata. This is much more advanced and I would try to emulate IDE mode first.
Leave comments if you need additional assistance.

it is not possilble. Try with other XP CD. It will definitely get installed on your PC.
WINDOWS XP REQUIRES MINIMUM OF 128MB OF RAM.
Please do so, your problem will get solved.
