When you start your computer with the windows startup disk in the drive, you choose START COMPUTER W/ CD-ROM SUPPORT. Once everything is loaded and you get to the A:\ prompt, just above that prompt it will tell you what driver letter your cd-rom drive is. Let's say it's E: for my posting. Then you would type e: at the a:/> prompt. Then once your prompt has changed from A:/> to E:/> prompt, you type setup. Windows setup should then begin. If it doesn't, try entering setup.exe, if that doesn't work, type dir and see if your cd-rom activates and you get a listing of the files on the cd.
