excerpt from the following source: How to install or upgrade to Windows XP

1. Start your computer from the Windows XP CD-ROM. To do this, insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer.

2. When the "Press any key to boot from CD" message appears on the screen, press any key to start the computer from the Windows XP CD-ROM.

3. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to begin Windows XP Setup.

4. Read the End-User License Agreement, and then press F8.

5. Select the partition in which you want to install Windows XP, and then press ENTER.

6. Select the Leave the current file system intact (no changes) option, and then press ENTER to continue.

7. Press ESC KEY to install to a different folder.

If the Setup program detects another operating system folder, it prompts you to type the name for the new folder after the back slash (\), for example, \WINXP. If there are no other operating systems detected, the Setup program automatically names the folder \Windows.

8. Press ENTER to continue.

9. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Windows XP Setup.
