Unhappy Please Help With WIN2K...

Ok, I am currently going to install Win2k on my secondary system, I have gone into the F1 menu and made the computer boot from a cd and nothing else, inserted the cd and it reads it. Then it goes to a black screen and in white letters it says Wrong disk, insert boot disk in drive A or something like that....Im wondering if I need a boot disk in a floppy to be able to install Win2k, but Im not sure.
Please Help,
Knownothing

If you have a boot floppy, then use that. After it goes to the command prompt point to your disc drive and type in Setup.exe.

Invalid? You mean the boot disk is invalid?
