Recently when trying to load Office 2000 Pro I encounter problems with Disk 2.

I have loaded disks 1 & 2 on an older computer a few years ago, it broke (hard disk) so no longer have it!

A year or so ago I installed disk 1 and it loaded fine but when it asked for Disk 2 I started getter error messages stating it (Disk 2) was unable to find a folder on Disk 2. I can explore and find that folder but when installing the program doesn't seem to be able to find it!

A few months ago I tried to load disk 2 again selecting only MS Publisher to be installed, this time it claims not to be able to find some fonts in the fonts directory. Went to MS and downloaded the missing font and tried to install again and now it was missing another font, downloaded that one and restarted. Now it says it's not able to find the first font it couldn't find even though its in the font directory!

Any Idas

Thanks
Neil

Is the disk scratched at all?
If it is you can try polishing it out with toothpaste and a wet rag, using single strokes from the center hole outward

The disk is relatively scratch free but I will give it a try any recommendations of which toothpaste?

Regular Crest or Colgate, not the smokers kind. That's a little too aggressive
