This sounds like a Upgrade Version of XP if it is actually attempting to install XP and not Vista.

A Upgrade XP Pro Disc which was the only type sold in AU asks for a 98SE, W2k or NT Disc to be inserted. You need to insert one of these to enable the install of XP to proceed as the Upgrade Disc looks for a previous version of Windows to allow you to install the XP version. If you don't have this you shouldn't be using a Upgrade Disc but a OEM Install Disc which naturally costs more.
