I thought you might be interested in this.
I didn't know you could do this.
A lot of people appear to be unaware of the fact that you do NOT need the 4, 5 or 6 setup disks in order to install Windows 2000 and XP. A common Win98 boot disk such as the Boot Disk Essentials diskette below can be used to install these OS's. This is what the Win XP System Setup Disk above does. Here's how to do it:
1.. Start the computer with your chosen boot disk.
2.. Change to the cdrom drive.
3.. Go into the \i386 directory on the cdrom.
4.. Run WINNT.EXE to begin the install process.
