It should go into the recovery partition so you can do a system restore.
This will return your system to factory settings like new.

I agree booting with the XP cd should get the option to format, quick or full, then install xp. Or versa visa.
It will go much smoother if you have a Dell branded XP cd.

Have you been able to install all the drivers and all updates?
Does your Device Manager show any yellow exclamation marks on drivers?

Is there anything else we can assist with at this time or is the system now running correctly for you and are you happy with the resolution?
