I was wondering if anyone could be nice enough to give me detailed instructions on how to install winXP on a clean hard drive. iv'e tried using a boot disk and also changing the bios to boot from the cd first. In both cases, it didn't work. Please help:)

Insert Windows XP CD into first CDROM drive (IDE/ATAPI) and set BIOS to boot from the CDROM drive. Reset computer after saving changes.

Or if that fails, boot from floppy disk (DOS) and type:
D:
cd i386
winnt.exe


That should start the install directly.
