Boot from CD won't work

So I'm a noob and having much trouble with my XP clean installation.
When I try to install windows through the normal windows installation
setup, I get the error:

The following value in the .SIF file used by Setup is corrupted or
missing:
Value 0 on the line in section [SourceDiskFiles] with key "SP2.cab"
Setup cannot continue. To quit Setup, press F3

So I then tried booting straight off of the CD and now I get the
error:

NTDETECT Failed

and it just restarts the computer after that. Everything's messed up,
somebody help me please

p.s. I also tried some people's suggestions from other forums to go
into repair and do fixboot etc. And none of that works.

Your CD drive is set as the first boot device in the BIOS?
