Default WinXP and my PC

Hi.
Here is my problem, please help me if you can.
I have 2 y.o. Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo 600 computer.
I decided to reinstall my WindowsXP o.s.
I push on restart computer and choose "boot options" then I choose for "cd-rom boot", and here is the problem. I need to push any button to boot from cd, but when I push it nothing happen and windows continues to boot like usual. I've try with different keyboards, and I've tryed to install it from the windows, like without re-booting but then it gives me a message that "my version is older"...
Please ppl, help me...
P.s. sorry for my english!

use powermax to delete the drive. you don't need to hit key to boot from it

Hi, yes my keyboards are both USB and PC-2(I think that is what they call it).
I hit like a thousand times on my keyboard and nothing happening!
Are you sure that I can use a powermax, don't you think my keyboard woun't work under installation?
Well, if it will be my only way out, then I'll use it, but I want to be sure.
Thank all of you for helping me.
