Installing without the 95 or 98 CD ROM handy

This tip was submitted to the searchWin2000 Tip Exchange by member Matthew Laccetti. Let other users know how useful it is by rating the tip below.

When performing an install on a 95 or 98 client, and you do not have the 95 or 98 CD ROM available, when Windows needs to copy files, try checking the C:windows or c:windowssystem directories for the files. You may need to switch between directories during the install. This has worked for me about 95% of the time.
