Just restart the computer and start again with the new disk, or finish your installation and activate with the new copy's product code.

Boot into the BIOS, and set the CD/DVD drive as the first boot device.

Insert your new XP disc.

Restart the PC, and look for a message to 'press any key'. Do so at that time.

It will start the format/install process.

Make sure to delete any existing partitions and do a full format, if you want a clean installation. Follow the rest of the onscreen directions, and you should be all set. If you have any problems, just let us know.
