Unhappy Dell Optiplex

Hi everyone

I have inherited a dell optiplex from work and was trying to get it going for my sons computer games. The hard drive has been cleaned so it has no operating system on it. Also, the boot sequence is set to cdrom first and I have the windows 2000 cd in the drive. But when I boot up I always come to a screen that says "Strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility". I am not sure what to do to get around this. Any ideas??
