I was reinstalling my OS (windows xp) in my computer when a error ocurred saying that possibly the cd was damaged and the process couldn't continue. So I made a knew bootable cd for the same OS, but since I formatted the HD during the previous try, now I go straight to the cd shell command line and the computer won't boot from the CD, and I don't know how to boot from the CD through the command line. Could you give me some help on this, please?

You need to do one of two things. Either set the CD/DVD drive as the first boot device in BIOS Setup or use the Fn key (usually F12) to bring up the Boot Selection menu when you boot the computer.

There is no CD Shell that I'm aware of.
