How can i install Windows XP on my Laptop without Working CD-ROM? Answered

My Laptop is A Dell Inspiron 6000,It supports Booting from the USB port,IDE to USB Cd drives do not work,I have a 2GB Flash Drive,a 1 GB flash Drive and a 128MB Flash drive,they are all capable of booting off of from the USB on my laptop. I also Have the windows XP Setup CD,Windows XP Home and Pro. I also Have a hardrive,About 40 GB,But all i want is to Start up the XP setup from My flash drive/s After that,I can figure out the Rest. Also,Try to keep it in the Free side,i have An extremely Limited Budget,And cannot buy anything.
