HP dx2280 MT - Win XP Professional

I was given two CDs at the time of purchase of the product. One is 'HP Restore Plus!' CD, and the other, 'Operating System' CD. I want to install operating system without going through the Restore Plus! CD route (because I've installed that way twice and not happy with the results).

How can I install the operating system as if I've replaced the hard disk and wish to freshly install it? As a matter of fact, I'm seriously considering replacing the hard disk as well. Any help in the matter will be highly appreciated.

Thanking you.
