Just Checking.

Ok. insert the boot disk and start the computer. You will get a message asking if you want to boot with cdrom support, say no. You should then be taken to the command prompt, where you will see A:> at the prompt type format C: and hit enter, press y and hit enter again when it ask if ur sure. It should now start formatting the drive C.

after that, restart the comp with the boot disk, but this time say yes to the cdrom support. It will set up virtual drive letters for however many cdroms u have connected. Insert the windows installation cd into the cdrom. At the A:> prompt type E: (this is usually the first cdrom.) Now type setup. If E: is the cdrom that the cd is in, then windows will begin to setup.

All you have to do then is to follow the on screen instructions.
