Is F12 the appropriate key for that machine and are you pressing it at the right time? It's best to press it lots of times just to make sure.
Yes beacuse when i press it, it says where do you want to boot from
You are switching the laptop off and rebooting aren't you?

What xp disc have you got?

You could always download Windows 7 and try that.
maybe try boot from USB? it might be seeing the cdrom drive as a usb device. that's all i can really think of.

do you have another machine you can try booting the xp disc on? just to check it is bootable.
try restart then press F8 then select boot from cd
