Hmmm... what do you mean you don't have a Floppy?

Install from the CD.

do you mean you don't have a floppy drive? if so, then i would recommend slipstreaming sp4 and making the cd bootable.

this is only if you do a fresh install. if you want to upgrade, then you shouldn't need a floppy.

A two months difference. I don't think bad_trip even comes here anymore since this thread contains his only post from January....
