Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

To make a bootable floppy from within winXP, format the disk and choose (make bootable).
To obtain the floppies to install winXP go to this Microsoft kbase article to download the files needed.

To make the CD with WinXP boot, go into the PC’s bios and set the CD drive to boot before the Harddrive. (Providing of course that your WinXP CD is bootable)

    Best solution is to buy a cheap USB CD Drive. This will allow you to "slipsteam" SP3 into your CD boot image of XP amomg other benefits. Helps to install other software too.
