I'm attempting to install L-M 6.1 from the Linux for Windows CD, and I am unable to get past the main screen.  My CD drive letter is M, and when the setup program asks for the CD Drive Letter, M is not an available option (C, D, E, F, G, H are).  I am not willing to change partitions or change everything around, since I only need Linux for a week, but I need to get this installed soon.

I am not familiar with the installer for Linux for Windows - however can't you just change the name of the harddrive in windows to H?

There is a command 'subst' which can be used to re-assign drive letters in DOS.  I am not sure of the exact syntax.
