trouble No Harddrive

I dont have an operating system or drive on my pc as it states.i had windows 2000 and me. i upgraded the me to xp but the xp doesnt work. when i tried booting the xp setup it siad that i had no drive of place for swap file. when you turn the pc on all it shows is a dell graphic unless you boot from a disk. when i boot from the xp boot disk the second one has an error. I want to install xp home but it says there are no drive to install on. my computer in a dell pc with an intel processor about six years old. It doesnt have an operating system installed or a c drive as it states. the only way it runs is if you boot it with a disk or cd. when i tried to install xp it said that my cp didnt have a drive to install on. i can give you more info if needed. thanks

how big is the hard drive? sometimes the size of the drive can affect xp installation. Also you may want to try formatting with the floppy, then installing.
