Default Urgent Help!! With OS/New Hardware

ok well i got my new mobo and so i go and put it in today works fine. got the RAM in the CPU and so on... First Boot up. works.. YAY!! cant wait to get an OS working.. so i go and grab my WinXP Pro CD. (That Juice mailed me. Thanks) put it in. i go into bios and tell it to boot from CD and i save and it does a reboot. well it says "PLEASE CONNECT BOOT DRIVE AND PRESS ENTER" (or somethin like that) and so im like WTF?!?! so i call up Asus thinking im doing something wrong. and he says that i might have to boot off of a 6 Floppy disks. so i go to m$.com and download the file. i pull out 6 (REALLY Dusty) Floppy Disks. Do a clean format on each one. then start the program. CMD Prompt opens and i do what it says. then i go and put in the first floppy (of the 6) and go to BIOS and tell it to boot off Floppy. then saves and reboots. and i get this error.


what should i do???...

its a really great motherboard. gave me no problems in BIOS. I would just love for it to WORK!!

its better to boot off the cd, the reason your getting that is because its not detecting one.
