I have a old computer without CD-ROM, but I want to install Win95 in it. Now, I only have the CD-version. I want to know what can I do?

I heard that if there is a network set already, I can access another computer's harddisk.... to install Win95 into my old computer. I want to know is it possible, and how?

Thanks!

If one of your friends have a computer and CD-ROM, he can help you by doing this :

- Open your computer case and get the Hard disk drive.
- Attach your hard disk with your friend's computer  as a Master slave connection.
- Copy Windows 95 setup directory from the CD-ROM to yor hard disk.
- Return the Hard disk to your computer then run ( In dos mode ) Setup in Win95 directory which you copy from CD-ROM.

I hope it work.

Go buy a used IDE CDROM for $20. Not having one is silly nowadays and will still cause you problems of not being able to easily install most of today's software.
