After the next restart dont respond to the prompt "Press any key to boot from CD..." or if it asks to select the boot device use your harddisk instead of CD drive.
I guess you are talking about installing/reinstalling Windows XP and your ATAPI CD drive is set to be the first in the boot device priority.
