Is this a retail or OEM XP CD? If it is, your system or CD drive may not
have the ability to boot from CD. All retail and OEM XP CD's are bootable.
If you have restore media, or created a XP CD from restore media, it may not
be configured correctly. Post back with more information.

Greetings --

All legitimate WinXP installation CDs are bootable. From whom did
you purchase your copy?
