Turn off your computer,put the xp cd in the cdrom,reboot the cd will tell you what to do.

Hope this helps.

No, I did that but that doesn't get me to the repair install screen; when the computer is rebooting, do I need to hit a specific key like F1 or F2 or F8 or something? I tried all those keys & they don't get me to what I'm looking for either. Any suggestions?
