First, you do want it to boot from CD if you're getting ready to upgrade to XP.

Second, your system specs are a little on the low side (but acceptable) for XP.

Finally, a clean install would be better than an upgrade (though maybe not practical...)

It's going to depend on the XP disk you have. If it's an upgrade disk then you'll want to run it from within ME. If it's a full version then you'll probably want to do a fresh install.

To keep it from booting from the cdrom you have two choices: Go into cmos/bios setup and put the cdrom after the hard drive in the boot order. Or you can just take the cd out of the cdrom until ME has booted up.
