Try resetting the BIOS Default settings. Enter BIOS Setup...once there, there should be a setting for Fail Safe Defaults or Default settings...if you don't see those, try pressing the F5 key...then Save the settings (F10) and exit BIOS Setup.
Re-enter the BIOS Setup and set the Boot Priority to:
- CD/DVD Drive
- HDD (System Drive)
- Other (Floppy)
Also...make sure the Function keys are enabled. Some keyboards require that you do this by pressing the F Lock key or the FN key.

A couple things to look at.
1. Does the cd rom light come on? When it tries to read the CD?
2. The cd drive could be bad.
3. The XP home CD could be bad.
