    Easy enough if you google, god bless bootable CD's!

    There you go, or There.

    Basically, boot into DOS, and type D:Setup, or whatever drive letter is your CD drive and follow the on-screen instructions. Simple really.

    Yeah there's a folder on the cd that contains all the .cab files. Format the drive and then create a suitably named folder on the now blank hard drive. Copy all the .cab files and anything else from that folder into the new folder and then run the setup file straight off the hard drive.

    Make sure you can see the cd in dos before formatting the hard drive though!!!
