I just completed a fresh Windows98SE install. After creating a directory [C:\win98], I copied the win98 folder to C:\win98. From there I ran the Setup. Windows is still prompting me for the CD for some actions. What gives?

TIA

I think you may need to modify the location of the Windows installation files in the Registry.  Check this web site for how to do it:

in the registry check the sourcepath
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup

the sourcepath is on the right, edit it to reflect c:\win98

Thanks for the info LeeTutor.

This is something I should've known already. I'm drawing blanks (again).  You beat stevenlewis to the punch on this question by what must have been seconds. For his effort I'll award him 25pts under separate cover [PTS for stevenlewis].

Both of you have been helpful in the past and I appreciate that!

Sorry 'bout the duplicate posts, and for the tip deleting them!

Cheers,
