Please help me install XP!

Ok, I really need help here. I have to install XP and my disk seems corrupted, I basically need to know how to create a bootable CD-ROM. I copied the disk no prob with gnometoaster, but the copy doesn`t boot either. Yes I have checked my BIOS settings because my FreeBSD disk boots. Can somebody PLEASE explain how to create a Bootable CD, Ive only got 3 blank disks left and I don`t feel like wasting another one.

In whatever burning software you use, be sure to "burn as iso" or perhaps "burn as image". If you burn as data the disk will be useless.
