Replaced old hard drive with a new unmarked 40GB drive.

How the hell does one reinstall XP from the CD ROMS without a boot-up floppy??


Please help!!!!!!

I think you'd have to go into the BIOS and set the system to boot from CD-Rom.

As Elrond says, go into the BIOS and set it to boot from CD. Put the XP CD in the drive and there you go. Installation will start. No need to format or anything - XP does it all for you. Sit with while it does things for you as you will have to answer some questions but it's dead easy, I've done it loads of times.
