You're onto it now,must be installed from DOS using boot floppy to gain the
'A" prompt for DOS. Then type E:SETUP with of course the CD already in.

First with the boot floppy in you might type FormatA/s at the "A" prompt to
transfer all the files to make the installation.On a formatted drive you have nothing,no CD drive,no BIOS zilch.Transfering the files creates a virtual CD drive,MBR & BIOS-all the DOS files.If you have access to another print a guide from http://tinyurl.com/jdyao.
