Hello,
I need help with how to make a bootable windows XP CD :( 

I've found a couple of videos on Youtube showing how to make it. However these videos shows it when the computer is working and can get pass the initial boot stage. My computer can't. I can't get to the C:\WINXP folder that is needed to copy the files.

Does anyone have any links or something so that I can download and make a CD?

Also I don't really know much about computers so what are service packs? There was a link from one of the videos and it says something about downloading Microsoft SP3. Can I just use that to make the CD? :??:

The windows install CD/DVD is bootable. Set the boot order in your bios to cd/dvd first, then hard drive second. Insert the CD and boot the computer.
