    What is the difference between booting with boot disks to install windows and just booting with CDROM? Is one better than the other?

    CD-ROM is quicker, but not all computers support booting from a CD. If your computer came with Windows 98 SE or earlier, then it won't boot to the CD, but computers that came with 200/ME or later support it.
