invalid system disk error, help nee

Specs: Windows XP
I have some excess computers after closing an office and am putting some machines together for family. I have an old vectra vl400 that the harddrive was wiped clean. I partitioned and then formatted. I downloaded the 6 disks for winxp boot load. I completed that fine and want to load winxp on the machine. The xp installation is on a dvd-r disc. It won't load on the vectra even after I change the bios sequence. I get an error that says invalid system disk replace the disk, and then press any key. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I know this is the most obvious question but, is the optical drive DVD capable? Maybe it can only handle cd's?
