Create a Start Up Disk on some other computer, if your Lap Top has Floppy Disk Drive.

Download and run, prepare an empty Floppy Disk. Boot from it and then try running the setup from CD. It should work.

I Never see Acer 700Mhz with out Floppy.
Some WinME CDs boot, some is written that they boot, but dont.

Why don't you try to change the CDs.

You could install win2000 it's better and working good on Acer 700Mhz.
