Working on a Dell latitude laptop which need to have windows xp fresh Installed. The machine will not boot up from the cd-rom unless I can enter the bios and change the boot configuration. It's a Phoenix Bios. I tried the recommended default passwords "cmos", "Bios", "Phoenix" and "Dell" and none of these work. Any suggestions would be a great help.

BIOS or Operating System's passwords are there for the purpose related to Security and Privacy to protect the legitimate owner of a machine. While there are many locations on the Internet that might help you learn about managing passwords for a machine's BIOS or Operating System, we a G2G do not assist in what amounts to hacking past a machine's Security and Privacy safeguards.

While such requests are often legitimate, and come from users who experience exactly the kind of problem that you post, we have no way of determining legitimate vs. not legitimate, therefore we do not respond to such requests.
