Install Windows Xp on Toshiba Te2000? Help! Going Insane

Hey. I recently bought a cheap second-hand Toshiba Te2000 from Ebay. It has Ubuntu already loaded on. I want to install Windows Xp.
So I insert my Windows cd into the drive, and press F12 on the 'Toshiba' screen to select the boot device. I press C to select cd-rom, but instead of the Windows installation process starting, I am simply taken back to the Ubuntu logon screen (for which I have no username and password).
Could someone PLEASE tell me how to delete Ubuntu and install Windows XP so I can start using my new laptop?
Thanks
