Forgot a DOS setup trick HELP

Can someone please tell me the DOS command to copy the CAB files from the WIN CD ROM to the fresh Hard drive so I can setup from the drive instead of the CD ROM, this also forces windows to never ask for the Windows CD ROM when setting up new Hardware , Etc.  I forgot it !!!!!   I know instead of  "D:\SETUP " it was  "D:\copy *.* C:......something   something .....I AM LOOSING MY MIND  please help.  :)   Thx in advance.

first, make a directory on your c: drive called CABS:

md c:\CABS
then switch to your cd rom drive (let's call it d)

cd Win95
copy *.* c:\CABS

then do setup:

cd \CABS

that should do it for you. . .
