Check out www.bootdisk.com

You should be able to find whatever you want there.

Good luck!

There are downloads at Microsofts site to create the 6 or 7 floppy set for booting to install XP from a floppy drive.

There are diferent files for the Pro and Home versions.

If your PC supports booting from CD, all you need to do is set the boot order in BIOS settings so that the CD is the first device.

While I havn't tried this, you may be able to boot from a startup floppy with CD support, and run setup from the XP CD.

If your computer is capable of starting the WinXP from the cd-rom drive... then use that.

Go into your BIOS (you'll see something like "Press F2 to enter Setup" -- press whatever key it says)... and change your boot order so that the cd-rom drive comes first. Your WinXP cd should boot then.
