This is a laptop I'm guessing?

Why did it start doing that in the first place? Did it just happen? If it did, it could easily be a hard drive failure.
If it happened because you did something, the disc you are using, where its copying files could be corrupt also, but it could also be the RAM, which accesses the data during installation.

I'm afraid it doesn't seem like it'd be an easy fix.

appears to be a desktop board Kage

@OP, no floppy disk in the floppy drive yeah? that will cause that error message.

Could also be a faulty cable, are the optical drive and the HDD on the same IDE cable?

A True Folders got a point.

Is there a floppy disk in the floppy drive?

Open up the computer if you can, and as he said, check the ribbon cables for any damage, that may cause the floppy drive (if there is one), to activate, or if theres any damage to the hard drive cable.

If you have a SATA hard drive, make sure BIOS doesn't have it set up for RAID. If it's set for RAID XP's setup will not see it without a floppy drive with a driver disk.

Right, but if he doesn't do the F6 to install RAID drivers while the XP cd is loading, he won't be able to see his hard drives.

Yeah, haha, sorry about that Celegorm. I don't know how I did that.

I'm wanting to know how this came up though. Wheather for instance, he had Windows running fine, and it suddenly started doing that, or wheather he wants to install Windows for the first time, after for instance formatting.
