Their should be an option in Virtual PC to capture your CD/DVD drive. This gives Virtual PC direct access to an CD/DVD you insert. If you haven't created a new Virtual Machine already, do so now, one of the presets should be an XP installation. Once this has been completed insert the XP CD, capture the drive and reboot the Virtual XP Machine. The Windows XP installation should start automatically.
