First, you will need to get copies of ALL the XP compatible hardware drivers for your new computer. BIOS, audio, video, modem, ethernet, etc. Burn it to a CD so you can apply them after the XP installation is done.
Next, make sure the BIOS is set so it boots from the CD-ROM drive first...Once that's done, place the XP CD in the drive and follow the prompts partition the drive, format the drive, and install XP.
Here's a link with a step by step tutorial of what you will see during the set up. (Pictures are included.):
Hope this helps.

Can anyone please tell me how I can uninstall Windows 98 and start again I have now purchased Windows XP but I cannot install it and Windows 98 will not let me uninstall it.
