Install fresh Windows XP without floppy?

Is it possible to install Windows XP Pro without having a floppy boot disk?

My brother-in-law has messed up his PC again and I've offered to help him sort it out.

He only has an original installation CD but no floppy boot disk and his HD has been formatted.

Is it possible to boot from a CD in those circumstances?

Thanks.

You don't require a floppy for XP Pro.
But change the bios to first boot CD Rom.
