There is no command lines, just menu choices.

Put the CD in and browse it. Find all the doc and txt files and read them. That should tell everything you'll need to know.

We don't have any info on your hardware. You'll also need to go to the Microsoft site and check your system's compatiblity.

well, if it won't boot off the win2k cd then you can create win2k boot disks from the cd.

d:\bootdisk\makeboot.exe a:

there is the path for the command.

Just change directories to the bootdisk dir and run the makeboot command. You'll create 4 diskettes that you can use to boot your computer and install win2k.

D:
cd\bootdisk
makeboot A:

those are the commands

Have fun
