Is the first boot device in BIOS set to the cd-rom??

Is this an original XP cd or one you or someone made for you (totally different setup procedure) ??

Great.. if the cd-rom is set as the first boot device, all you need do is boot with the XP cd in the cd drive.. Watch your screen.. you should get a message saying something like "Press a key to boot from cd".. Do it and follow the prompts from there..

Are you getting the message to press any key to boot from the cd??

Try removing everything over and above the necessities - soundcard, ethernet card, modem, etc.. Only leave in the cd drive, the harddrive, video card and ram..

Make sure the on-board anti-virus located in BIOS is disabled.. Now try it again..
