xp is bootable from the cd...........make sure your cd rom is 1st boot device(in bios).....boot from the cd,let the drivers install,at the 1st blue screen choose "repair" at the 2nd blue screen choose "install"...you will be taken through the formatting process......from then on its self explanitory......30 minutes and your cooking;)

If you're installing a fresh install, and you get errors during the install, it could be several things. Your hardware may be broken or substandard, or you may have compatibility issues with the O/S you're installing. I'm afraid that "several different error messages" doesn't give us much to go on.
