I'm currently using Sabayon 3.4 mini edition on my laptop and I'm really happy with it, I hope things work out well for you.
The operating system you are currently using shouldn't impact the installation of this OS.
What happens when you insert the CD? Does it bring you to a failure screen or does it simply not recognize that it is bootable and bring you to windows? Did you checksum the iso that you downloaded or tried to reburn the CD?

It's alright now,a friend helped me But i need another thing from you Can u tell me how to install it on a HDD with installed WinXP Pro?Do i need a different partition and which format should it be?

If the installer handles the shrinking for you, it will also format the partition with what it needs, so there's no need to do anything special there.

There is two more things to ask and then you can mark the thread as resolved Which desktop acceleration is best:No Desktop Acceleration,AIXGL or XGL?Which will give best performance?And do i need a bootloader like GRUB to choose whichOS to run?
