What do you type when you setup windows95 (C.D.)? I tried everything and it's still not working. What does this mean if you can't find '/idlist,:-2109233204,c:\' ? Please Help Me....

Usually you boot off a DOS floppy that has a CDROM driver on it, format the C: drive, then change to the CDROM drive and run setup.

You need as a minimum to have format, mscdex, a cdrom sys file and a mouse driver on this disk.

eg:

A:> format c: /u /q
-- formatting --
A:> d:
D:> setup

You don't need a mouse driver.  Win95 will find it.
After the hard disk is formatted, boot from floppy and change to CDROMdrive:\Win95 and run setup.

Ralph
