Windows not booting off external disc drive

I’m trying to install windows xp on Lion. This is a little bit complicated, but I was using this tutorial. I got to step 6, which is booting from the Windows XP disc. But it says “no bootable medium found — insert boot disc and press any key.” I think the problem is occurring because I am using an external dvd drive, because my internal one is broken. Why is this occurring.

Here is an image of the partitions from within disk utility:

Note: The image says the partition is formatted “Mas OS Extended (Journaled)” but it is actually “MS – DOS (FAT)” It is like this because I formatted it using the disk utility on the install media for Snow Leopard.
