If it sees the hard drive, then you should be able to insert the XP disk, boot from CD Drive and install it.
It could be the motherboard. You can download an utility from the hard drive maker or look on the DELL site for drivers....dunno anything else to try.
Keith might know

There isn't a disc in any of the other drives?

I found these sites, you might like to checkout. I googled the errors you got and came up with them.
Is this an used computer you working on? Think someone put Linux on it.
Give you something to read for a while.

Run this, then change the disc for the XP CD and press enter, look for press any key
To completely erase all data on the drive(s)
Download Boot and Nuke
Using Boot and Nuke
Use the autonuke option, which could take 8 hours or so, then when you run Windows set up, check it is creating a RAW1 partition on C, if the drive letter is different, restart the PC and it should default to C
