First off, make sure your computer is set to boot off the disk, not the floppy, although it shouldn't matter unless you have a floppy in there.
Next, try using a CD-R instead of a CD-RW. in 2000, if I'm not mistaken, you had to have DirectCD installed in order to read any CD-RW.....which naturally won't be there on a fresh hard drive.
If I\'m curt with you, it\'s because time is a factor. I think fast. I talk fast. And, I need you guys to act fast if you wanna get out of this. So, pretty please with sugar on top, clean the fu**ing car- Winston Wolf, Pulp Fiction
