[Solved]Function keys won't work during XP installation

While I was messing around with Linux on an old unused PC, I managed to wipe the hard drive. I popped in the Windows XP reinstallation disc that came with the computer and tried to reinstall the OS. When I come to the point to accept the agreement and continue with the installation, I find that the F8 key that I'm supposed to press won't work. All the other keys work just fine.

I'll admit, I'm stumped. Is there an way for me to reinstall XP?

Edit: Nevermind... turns out the F Lock key was the only problem. Silly me.
