"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Is CD ROM drive first boot device in BIOS setup?  If not, needs to be so that PC will boot from install CD.  After that, installation is straightforward on an IDE drive.
