When I try to start my computer in Safe mode using the F8 key,
I don't get the "Windows Advanced Options Menu". Instead I
get a window that says "Please Select Boot Device" with the following
three options: Removable Device, Hard Drive, and ATAPI CD-ROM
I using WinXP SP2.

If you can boot your computer normally, there is another way to boot into Safe Mode with Windows XP:
Boot the computer normally.
Close all open programs.
Click Start, and then click Run; the Run dialog box will appear.
Type msconfig in the box and then click OK.
