i would think that if he set first boot device to cd-rom than it would try to read from cd, but than go on to the next boot device if it didn't find a bootable CD.
jason try uninstalling the video drivers and reboot. maybe the video drivers are conflicting with winXP.
are you getting booted out and getting a DOS A:\ prompt or is it a blank screen? i didn't think winXP let you boot into native DOS, that really would make no sense to me.
