For some reason my computer wont let me boot off of the xp disk. All your supposed to do is put the xp disk in and it prompts you to boot it right? Thats how I remember doing it. Whats the problem?

No you have to tell your PC through the bios to look at the CDROM Drive as a boot device, preferably before the HD that has the current install of windows.

or if your bios supports it you can hit a certain key to bring up boot devices then select the cd/dvd rom.
