downgrading from VISTA to Windows XP

  science wiz 05:13 24 Jan 08

i have bought a laptop PC and I want to remove the windows vista in it so that I can install windows XP instead.

but the problem i face is that, once i boot from the CD, it reaches a level and tells me that there is no disk in the system or something need be done in the configuration.

so, how can i remove the windows vista in my computer and instead format the laptop, partition it and install windows XP professional in one of the partitions?

Thank you in advance,
