I formated the C: drive and now I want to install Windows Me.

When I open in DOS, however, using the Windows Me boot disk, I can't move from the C: prompt to the D: prompt. To change to the CD-ROM drive, at the C: prompt, I type 'cd D:' but DOS indicates that this is an invalid drive.

I have to get to my CD-ROM drive (the D: drive) so that I can run the 'setup.exe' file to install Windows Me.

At the Dos prompt type D: rather than cd D:. If your boot disk makes a ramdrive then your CD drive will be E:.
