You should be able to type it in before you get to that screen. You do have your boot disk in? As you should be coming to a screen with A:/ and you can type something in, this is where you type it

Took me a few days to get a operating system that worked my orginal one didnt, so i just bought xp today. and well im having another issue. i select the partition to install and then it has choices, quick format, format, or leave partition as is. anyone i click after it finishs it says:



The following value in the .sif file used by setup is corrupted or missing.

Value 0 on the line in section [SourceDiskFiles] with key "Spl.cab."

Setup can not continue to qui setup, press F3.
