In the meantime, look at Microsoft article 310994 for instructions on downloading and creating a boot disk.
Once you have the boot disk ready, do this (substitute Boot Disk [that you made] for Windows XP CD)
Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter "E". This letter may be different on your computer.
copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\
Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.
As to your question on BIOS [Basic Input/Output System], it's the "brains" of the comuter that tells all the other components and stuff how to communicate with each other. Some of the instructions talked about going into BIOS and changing the Boot Sequence. Since you don't have the Windows CD, it doesn't apply to your situation.

Looked atthe site you said and it says I need to make 6 floppy disks to reinstall programme but this pc has no floppy disk so i cant make them!
So can I download new boot onto a cd?
Can i correct pc in the pheonix bios system?
Sorry but I dont know very much as you can tell! :-(
