    That's a good idea but I have never heard of it being done and really don't know that it can be done in your situation. I would say you could make the disk set normally and then copy the setup files from the floppy disks onto six seperate CD's and then boot from the CD drive and see if that would work.

    But since you have no floppy's that really is'nt going to help. Whenever you click on the setup disk program that you downloaded, it automatically looks to your A:\ drive for a floppy disk. Unless Microsoft has another version of the setup disk program I think your sort of stuck until you get some floppy's.

    Sorry.

    What problem are you having that you need the setup disks for?
