erm.. first of all, is it windows xp or office xp?
if your booting from Office XP, of course it won't boot, because you need WINDOWS xp cd to install.. Try see which key to press to go to bios setup, and set it to boot from CDROM first, then try inserting a bootable Windows XP disc into the CDROM drive..
EDIT: wait, sorry i didn't see correctly, you said, " The package my dad has(got it through the "home use" program) is two cds, one that just say Microsoft office, and another that says media content"... Where do you see windows in there?
