CD-ROM Drive not recognised

Hi, I recently got a used computer with windows 2000 installed. I'm trying to
install XP over 2000. I tried booting from the CD but I'm getting a message
that no CD drive is installed. I them made a Boot disk(6) and tried booting
from the floppy. the installation starts but then stops, with a message
reading that No CD drive is installed so installation cannot continue. Also
the computer has a password. I'm very frustrated since I can do nothing about
it. can someone please help? I'd really appreciate it. thanks.
regards,
Andy

Thank you very much Mark, I was able to replace the password and gain access.
I really appreciate your help.
i do have another problem though, regarding the CD drive not showing up in
My Computer and Device Manager.
The drive does work as it opens and closes and the disk spins inside. I even
tried another Drive and it still does not recognize it. Any ideas? thanks in
advance.
