If you are sure the BIOS is set to boot from the CD-ROM drive first, it's possibe you are failing to act on the "PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD" message which the XP CD generates. If you fail to press any key when this message appears, the system will attempt to boot from the next drive listed in the BIOS.
