Make a Win 98 Boot floopy with CD Support.
Download the Windows 98 SE boot disk from Bootdisk.com
Insert both Floppy n WinXP CD inside floppy n cd drive respectively.
Change Boot Preference to Floppy in Bios.
Restart PC.
Boot the PC from floopy.
Then try to install WinXP.

Note: Can do the same if D drive is a hard disk partition and WinXP files are dumped in a folder.

Hope it helps.

oh_yeah - Just make a bootable startup cd and boot from it 1st and then install winxp from ur hard disk - or u can always burn the winxp installation and make a bootable OS disc and install directly from CD - as told by The Unknown.

Hope it helps.
