NT Server 4.0 Can't find install Path?

I've installed NT 4.0 with NETBEUI. Now I want to add other features such as TCP/IP and DHCP but when I attempt to add them, NT Cannot find the correct path to the directories it needs to copy files from. I enter the correct drive letter for the CD ROM but it still can't find it. I've even went so far as to enter to directory that the file it can't find exists but it just pukes on the next file. Why would the source path be corrupted or unable to find the directories to install from?

>>>> I have tried to direct it to the correct directory on the CD but it fails again. I haven't tried to just post it directly to I386 though... I will try this. Thank you

..and the cd is the same as the one you installed from? just enter
<cdletter>:\i386

I have tried to direct it to a deeper directory level than this, and it would load the file in question but then yell about the next it was trying to load. Are you saying  that the install program directs itself from I386 to other directory branches?
