What kind of machine do you have?
Have you researched all your hardware and familiarised yourself with all the details? For example, do you know what video card you have? What your monitor resolution settings are? All of these details are available from within XP in your hardware settings. Once you can advise what type of machine you have, you will be able to select the appropriate installation manual from here:-


In the majority of cases it will be the Intel X86, but best to make sure first.
