After installing XP on my C drive, it somehow became an extended partition.

Yesterday I installed Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition to my D drive
with 10 GB on it and formatted it NTFS. In the process it wiped out
everything on my C drive but didn't bother my E drive with 18 GB (NTFS). I
can live with that loss, but now it's not letting me reinstall XP on my C
drive. Whenever I bootup with Windows XP pro in the CD ROM, it says "Boot
from CD:" I press enter. Nothing, it doesn't let me type anything - and then
boots up Server 2003.

How can I install XP on the C drive? (I have now converted all three drives
to 'Dynamic')
Can anyone help? Thanks!

XP can't be installed on a dynamic drive. Change it to basic.
