received the following error messages.

I simply want to re-install XP from the master disk.
Is there something that I am missing, besides the above information?

Do I need to swipe the Hard Disk before I re install the OS or what/

It is usually impossible to re-install XP while running the install
from within WIndows XP.

You must:

1) Set the BIOS to boot from CD / DVD ROM drive (first boot device.)
2) Insert XP install CD into the drive
3) Reboot PC and follow direction to boot from CD, is displayed on
monitor.

An important step to consider is to create a "revised" XP install CD
(aka slipstreaming) which would contain the "latest" available
"released" service pack (Service Pack 3 is still in test phases and is
not release for updates.)
