Default XP will not install

Everytime I boot with my XP CD it says:

An error has been encountered that prevents setup from continuing

One of the components that Windows needs to continue setup could not be installed

Data error (cyclic redundancy check)

then it says check the cd and then it says press ok to view the set up file

Help please! I already deleted the partition before.

Is the disk scratched?
Do you have another disk to try?
Do you have another cd drive to try?
Have you cleaned the disk?
