A lot of people appear to be unaware of the fact that you do NOT need the 4 or 5 setup disks in order to install Windows 2000 and XP. A common Win98 boot disk such as the Boot Disk Essentials diskette below can be used to install these OS's. This is what the Win XP System Setup Disk above does.
Here's how to do it:
Start the computer with your chosen boot disk.
Change to the cd rom drive.
Go into the \i386 directory on the cd rom.
Run WINNT.EXE to begin the install process.
The above was copied from Dr. D's web site.
If a bootdisk other than the essentials is used, smartdrv.exe must be added and loaded manually before running WINNT.EXE
