Default Building Issues

I bought a barebones kit to assemble and I put it all together and I am having some issues.

First it has a 300W PSU, AMD Semptron 2800+, 512mb RAM, 30gb HD, 20gb HD, CDROM, 256mb Nvidia Video Card (AGP)

it booted up fine first off and I booted of the windows XP pro cd and started to install windows xp on the 30gb. It restarted after copying files and then got:

error loading operating system

now it doesn't seem to recognize the cdrom most of the time either in BIOS for some reason as well. I'm a bit confused as to the issue(s).
