If you are running Windows 95/98/ME then not having a floppy drive is a big problem....I would get one installed if I were you, They're only cheap

If you are running Windows XP then just restart your computer with the XP disc in your drive, But make sure your Boot order is set so the CD Drive boots first

you have to make sure boot order is CD. Go into bios, (F12 I think, look at the very first screen you see), and scroll around until you find boot order. First should be C drive, then cd disk. Change that so that CD is first, then C drive. Then put in your winXP cd and restart.
