You're trying to install XP on a laptop with only 128Mb of RAM?

Check the BIOS

Turn off any anti-virus protection found in the BIOS; usually something to the effect of protect MBR.
This will stop the writing of the boot block and installation of an OS.

It depends on what you are using to load the OS with

It's most likely that the Install Media doesn't support the Hardware that you have and you are getting an Error Message when some critical unsupported Hardware is found and you are unable to install the correct drivers.

It's also possible that you have way too little RAM available and you are running out of Memory but without knowing what the actual Error Messages are it's impossible to say.

Also if you are attempting to install XP SP2 it's possible that you have unsupported hardware that will not allow XP to be installed. Most of the unsupported Hardware by XP SP2 was Optical Drives particularly CD Burners but some IDE Controllers also caused the problems.

Of course if you have the Fujitsu Recovery Media all that is required is a Wipe of the HDD and a install as the correct drivers are present on the Install Media which may not be the case with a generic M$ OEM Install CD.
