    Ok, just tried it.

    First time, just put the CD in. It detects the DVD drive right away now, and with the disc in, just goes to grub.

    Second time did what you said to, with the floppy. Again, just goes to grub.

    And Im absolutly sure its the EXACT CD I used to instal XP.

    What should I do now? Can I access the CD drive FROM grub??

    First try putting your original XP disk in the CD drive and reboot. If it reads the XP operating system disk. Then you have a faulty or wrong disk.

    If it doesnt read the XP install disk then check in BIOS (again) that the CD ROM is the first boot device. If it isnt then make it so. If it already is then change the CD reader. A clue here is to use the BIOS to automaticly detect the hard drives etc. it should automatically detect the CD ROM or whatever.

    Hope this helps.
