Trouble Installing Windows XP on Work Computer (Not April 1st)

I have a Dell Dimension 9200, and am using an Dell OEM (Maybe not the one that came with PC) Windows XP SP2 disk). I chose boot from cdrom, click any key, and get "Setup is Inspecting your hardware...", but after that, instead of the Blue screen the screen just goes blank (But monitor still has signal).

"If Linux is installed, Windows XP setup may be confused by the Linux Filesystem Partition. You may need to first F-DISK (G-PARTED) the drive and then give the XP install another try.

I think I have also run into this issue in the past when trying to Install XP on a system that had a Linux install on it previously."
