I usually see these issues with bootable CDs:

1. BIOS settings are incorrect - Your's are OK.
2. Incorrect jumper settings on the optical drive - Your's are OK.
3. Bad media ...

Since other bootable media works your XP CD does not, I'd check for dirt, fingerprints, scratches, smudges ...

Is this an original XP CD or a CD-R?
