There is a PDF document on the website which has installation instructions in. You can find that here. Burning the ISO and then booting from the CD should get you started, though.

None really. Did you verify the ISO before burning it? Maybe ask on their forums: http://www.linux-xp.com/forum/.

It boots from the CD and all you get is a screen that says "boot"??? I think you are leaving out some details.
Did you mean to say that you installed, and then--when you rebooted--you got that screen??

Why Linux XP and not something more mainstream??
