Can you state what problems you are encountering and details of any error messages that you receive - to give someone an idea what may be going wrong ...

Also is this a Full Retail Version ? Or O.E.M ?

Be sure the bios first boot device is set to cdrom then insert the cd and reboot. Then follow the onsrceen commands to install.

could be a problem with the cd or the cdrom as well as incompatable hardware.If you have any expansion cards that aren't absolutely nessecary the remove them and try it...

Well, many burned copies of XP fail to copy the files correctly...but since you have an original this shouldn't be problem.

Another common cause is bad ram or trouble reading the CD - either becuase of the CD or the CD-ROM drive.
