....i wish teachers would get that those educational copies aren't for giving out for free...

go through the beginning steps of the install (the format of the drive and the install and what not) and when it's done and reboots the computer...eject the cd and let it start up...it SHOULD go straight into the rest of the setup....if it needs the cd again for any part of the install it will tell you to put it back in

well...my answer would be that you've got a bad version...and this is what happens when you get coppied windows....the fact that it's probably an educational version doesn't make it ok for your teacher to just burn you a copy of it...and you should really question his ethics for doing so...my suggestion is for you to actually go out and purchase your own copy of xp
