Choose start with CDrom support then change to CD letter if it was D:\ it will now be E:\ until you install windows then type setup and press enter. You will be better sticking with 98se ME is the worst OE Microsoft invented

Win ME will slow your PC down dramatically stick with WIN98 or Win98se.

northy, if you have booted from a floppy disk, then most likely win. will have taken over the drive letter *D* for ram.

At the A: prompt type the letter E: and press the enter key. From the new E: prompt, type the word, *SETUP*, should install from there, if not post back on same thread. Good luck. J.
