hi friends..
i had one problem..my windows xp didnt boot bec of viruses..
now i have installed ubuntu in my laptop..
i want to install windows xp again.. but the cd's setup.exe file doesnt run in ubuntu..
how can i fix the problem?
whats the command for running cd in linux?

Insert the cd and reboot. (And make sure that cd comes before harddisk in your boot order.)

Step 1. Place both thumbs at center of cd while positioning index and middle fingers from both hands firmly around the cd on each side.

Step 2. Now slowly apply pressure to both thumbs. It is normal to hear crackling noises so don't be alarmed.

repeat step 2 until desired satisfaction level is reached.

(1) put in the windows cd
(2) turn off computer
(3) turn on computer and hit the key to enter bios/setup (usually del)
(3) find boot order and make sure cd is before hdd
(4) exit saving changes
(5) follow on screen instructions
