I installed a backup drive (SyQuest) - works fine. But now
in COntrol Panel, when I launch Add/Remove programs, insert the CD for MS Office, click on Microsoft Outlook 97 and click Add/Remove, the machine can't locate the disk (It's looking for G:\Outlook\Setup.ini on drive G: but it is now drive H:, so where do I have to make the change to point to the proper (new) CD-ROM drive letter specification? Windows properly ID's the CD-ROM in Explorer and I have no problem using it with any apps - but there's a little pointer SOMEWHERE that needs to be changed...

You have a couple of options at this point.  You can go poking around in the registry to find the drive assignment and change it OR you can simply re-run the Office setup from your cd on drive H.  This will install Office with all the components you select, and re-create the registry entries pointing to the correct drive letter (H).

I hope this helps.

bmccaig: Sorry for the delayed response. You get the points although with a caveat. My fault for not mentioning that I knew already that I could reload from the CD-ROM. I was hoping to find out where in Windows I have to make the change so the OS itself looks in the right place. "Poking around the registry" is pretty vague... I'd like to know more specifically where to poke around if that's the case. Maybe you can manage to let me know, and again, sorry for the delayed response. Oh, and thanks as well for yours.
