I need a brand new start

How do I restore my Dell Inspiron (1010 mini) to factory settings?
The manual says to hit CTRL-F11 during boot (I'm running XP), but this does nothing. I've tried it 20 different times and it just sails into normal Windows startup. The usual F2 and F12 don't help.
The computer came with recovery CDs, but this laptop cruelly doesn't have a CD-ROM, and I don't have access to an external one. How can I reinstall Windows?
