i am trying to do a clean install of xp pro on a pc and every time i get to
the 3rd disc of the boot disks i either get an error message and it says it
can not continue instalation or it just locks up. now i know that it could be
a bad download of the files or a bad floppy but i have used the same disks
several other times with no problems at all. is there any other way of
installing like that without being able to boot from cd rom?
