    What CD is it and can you get to the installer?

    What errors or messages does it give you when you try to install it?

    What actually happens? It's common for a DVD to need to be perfect (smudge free, etc.) to install without exiting with some error, but perhaps that's not the issue.

    Moreover WinXP is deprecated and you should consider a current OS, such as Fedora 14 or OpenBSD 4.8 or Mac OS X 10.6 or even Oracle Solaris.

Please tell us EXACTLY what the error-message was.

If you are using a genuine Microsoft Windows XP Professional CD-ROM, or the "System Recovery" set of CD-ROMs that came with your computer, you should be able to delete the partition(s), and then reinstall.
