Set up could not finish opening a file on the source disk.

Search for and locate the folder containing BASE2.CAB, usually either
C:\Windows\Options\Cabs or C;\Windows\Options\Install but it can be
elsewhere even sometimes on a different partition, and when the installer
asks for a file point the program at that folder.

If you are still unable to create a boot floppy you can download the image
of a Win Me OEM boot disk from www.bootdisk.com. Download to your desktop,
double click to run and follow the prompts to transfer the image to a
floppy.

I tried your suggestion and it worked! Thank you so much, it was driving me
crazy and I couldn't find an answer anywhere. Thank you again.
