Another XP Restore Problem

Another XP Restore Problem Want to restore my Compaq Presario 2100 and I have the Quick Restore discs. The intstructions are to insert the CD in the drive and restart the computer. But it just boots up as normal. When I first tried to access the disc through my computer and I opened it it asked me to name the program to open it and in frustration I used Notepad. Now it uses that every time I try and it just says it is too small. Have tried accessing the disc through run but still with no success. What am I doing wrong. I thought it was going to be simple as I had the discs.
