Default Reinstalling hard drive on Inspfiron 6000

When I install the new hard drive and attempt to use the xp cd, the cd rom lights up and acts like it is working but wont read disc. Any ideas?

Do you get an error when it tries to read the disc?

In the BIOS, have you set it to boot from CD/DVD rather than HDD?
