Go to your BIOS and set the CD drive up as bootable disk.
Then just put in the XP CD in the drive and reboot the computer. The installer will start.

If for some reason you have an old CD drive that isn't bootable, you can use the 6 startup floppies. Watch out which ones you need, either XP Home or Pro and then for the original XP, with SP1 or with SP2.
