Insert your XP cd and start the system. You will need to go into the bios and set the boot sequence for cdrom first boot device.
Save the changes by pressing F10 and then Y for yes save changes and reboot
When the system reboots you will get a prompt that says press any key to boot to cdrom. Press a key

When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
Opent the side of the case and look at the hd. It should say something like
fujitsu, ibm, western digital, seagate
That will tell you which hd diagnostics you need

Which one of the 4 choices am I going to choose? You may create the media under Windows (using the Windows OS version) or Linux (using the binary image), but you must start your system with the DOS-bootable diskette to run DFT.

This is the one you want. It's for a cd version Here
Just burn it to cd as a iso. I

if you don't have a burning program that will burn .ISO files get burncdcc in my signature below.

NOTE...do not put a blank cd in until burncdcc opens the tray for you
1. Start BurnCDCC
2. Browse to the ISO file you want to burn on cd/dvd
3. Select the ISO file
4. click on Start

Make sure the bios is set for the cd drive as the first boot device
Put the cd in the cd drive and then boot your computer.

I'm not getting it...I clicked on the link and when asked if I wanted to open or save, I chose save and saved it to my desktop. Then when I open the folder it has 9 different things in there. an ASPI folder, a DATA folder, DFT folder, a DOS folder, autoexec.bat, command.com, config.sys, ibmbio.com and ibmdos.com

The iso file?
If that is what you are referring to, don't open that. it should have saved a file named dft32_v415_ b01.iso
Now run burncdcc and when it wants a file to use then browse to your desktop and pick that file.
Once its done burning then take the cd over to other system, put it in cdrom drive
change bios as instructed earlier, reboot and the cd will do everything for you from there
