Default Windows XP startup disk??

Is there a way to make a start-up disk for XP. If not, how do I install it on a virgin drive??

You can get any kind of boot disk you need from http://www.bootdisk.com
However if you have a bootable CD-Rom you can install from that.

One note you will need 6 (six) floppy disks in order to install on a virgin drive using the floppy method.

If you need to get into 'real' MS-DOS mode, you can use any Win9x startup disk... however if your drive is under NTFS (which DOS is unable to read the partition), the next best thing to go with is NTFSDOS.

There are also disk makers put out by MS in case you don't have a bootable CD-ROM. Here are the links.
