How to install Windows XP Tablet Edition 2005 from CD

I have the MS XP Tablet edition 2005 on 2 Cds.
I've installed it by booting from the first cd, formatted the hard drive and installed ok.
But it just seems to be plain XP that's installed.
I was never asked to insert the second cd. This cd contains a cab file called TABLETPC and I assume this is where all the Tablet PC functionality comes from. How do I install that?

If this is original Tablet 2005 - then the installer should prompt you to insert CD2 during the initial hardware setup.
Another problem is that if you use an XP pro serial - then Setup will not prompt you to insert the 2nd CD...

This is not an original Tablet PC, it is a machine used as a station in a hospital and it has a touch screen so that's why I thought it would be better to have tablet xp installed. Is it possible to install tablet xp on a machine that is not an original tablet?

The prompt for the 2nd disk is based upon the Product Key you typed in at the beginning of the install.    If you used a "regular" XP product key, the install stops at just the 1st disk.   Whereas if you used a Tablet PC product key, you get prompted for the 2nd disk (at the very end of the install)

BTW:  If you upgraded to Vista, you'd automatically get all of the Tablet PC parts.  (I can't remember which Vista SKU's have the tablet PC bits)
