To expand on what Powerless says, you need to set the BIOS so that the boot sequence begins with CD drive (not floppy as is usual), shutdown, insert the XP disk and boot up.

The boot sequence change procedure will be described in the motherboard manual.

Start the PC and tap delete or whatever key it says to get into the BIOS (Setup) and look through it untill you see First Boot Device (or similar) use the Page up/ Page down keys to change this to CD Drive. Save and Exit. Put the XP cd in the drive and Reboot.
