    Your CD has a later version of XP on it - possibly Service Pack 2 or even 3 and the system expects to see the one it started out with. That shouldn't be happening on a fresh installation so please post back with more details as to exactly when this happens. Are attempting a repair install? If so, it won't work unless you have that original disk - the one with Dell printed on a purple label.
