The BIOS cannot auto-detect optical drives, but windows can if the drive is fitted correctly and not damaged.

You have to get into BIOS (setup) first and set the first boot device to the cd-rom.. Now try the cd..
BTW, what OS are you trying to install?? If XP, are you sure your system can handle it??
Here's What You Need to Use Windows XP Professional
PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required (single or dual processor system);* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended
128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)
1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available hard disk space*
