This is an OEM restore cd and will not work with anything other that the Dell machine it was designed to be used on. You will either have to install Windows 98 on your drive or purchase a new Retail version of XP.
it should be noted that this XP CD came with my friends Dell PC which had XP pre installed

I'd bet a virtual brew that the Win98 is also an OEM. I think you best option at this point is to purchase a new Retail version of XP...
The Windows 98 CD came with my Dell all those years ago
