Go into your BIOS settings and make the boot sequence so that the CD-ROM is ahead of the hard drive for the boot sequence. Upon reboot, it will check your floppy, then your CD-ROM and then your C:

sorry about that. I must have posted the same time you did because when I saw this thread, there was no reply. I'm on dial up connection so there might be a delay when I sent it.
