Windows XP Installation Failure with Boot Camp...

Hey, all!

So, I have a MacBook Pro with snow leopard installed. I've also had Windows XP installed through Boot camp, and it had been running smoothly for a few months. All of a sudden, there was an error when I tried to run it, so I had to uninstall Windows XP completely, with hopes that I could simply reinstall it by using Boot Camp.

Unfortunately, I was wrong. If the computer didn't spit out the Windows XP SP2 cd even before the installation would begin, I would encounter the black screen of death, followed by this error message:

TRAP 00000006 exception TR=0028 cr0=0000000011, cr2=00000000, cr3=000000000 GDT limit=03ff base=00017000 idt limit=07ff base=00017400 CS:eip=0008:08000000 ss:esp=0010:00061fec errcode=0000 flags=000100012 nocy nozr intdis down trapdis eax=0000110c ebx0003001d5 ecx=00001660 cdx=534d0030 ds-0010 es=0010 edi=00350000 exi=00051db6 ebp=00061ff0 cr0=00000011 fs=0030 gs=0000

I have absolutely no idea what to do about this. The Windows XP SP2 cd I have has barely been used; after I used it successfully the first time to install bootcamp, I put it away safely in case I would need it again. But, Bootcamp will successfully divide the Mac and Windows Partitions successfully, but when the computer restarts to install windows, that's when the trouble begins (either the computer shoots out the disc, or I encounter that dreadful error).

I'm at a loss, and would greatly appreciate any help anyone can give me. Thanks!
