Do you get a flashed blue screen of death be4 it reboots? I recommend using the xp cd to try to repair the installation.. if that doesn't work, then you should reformat and reinstall xp.

How old is this computer? If it came installed with '98, then it might be better to buy a new one..

Make sure the cd drive is before the hd in the 'boot device priority' section in the bios.. When the computer completes post, it should ask you to press enter to boot from the cd.
