Make sure there are no CD's in the drive, cause it can cause XP to take a long time to boot. If this won't help, boot in safe mode by pressing F8 when booting. Run scandisk in safe mode.

did it originally have sp2?

if its an older computer then sp2 will really slow it down, and cause some problems
