New PC Chips Motherboard, AMD Processor, used HD with Windows 98 onit.  I want to install Windows XP new from the Windows XP Installation disc.  I've done this many times.  It seems like I have problems getting it to boot from the CD when there's an exisiting OS on the HD.   I changed the CMOS settings to boot from CD rom to install Windows XP.  It will not boot from CD.  It just says Novell Netware Ready Firmware V1.00 (940809) C etc. Then RPL-ROM-ADR: 0011 5BC5 8927 RPL - ROM - IRQ:5 RPL - ROM - FFC: 5. NTLDR is Missing. Press Ctrl+Aolt+Del to restart.  This Hard drive used to have an Operating system on it.  I've cleared the CMOS and tried again and it will not boot from CD Rom.  I also pressed F8 and got the boot selection screen to pull up and it does the same thing.  Any ideas?
