Place copy on your root directory

When I go to add windows componets it alway prompts me for the CD whether it is server 2003 cd or 2003cd r2.  I would like to place a copy of the contents on the root of the hard drive and have the registry look to that location in the event it need the CD.

Rip your 2003 cd's to an iso file
put those iso files in their own folder

Install virtual clonedrive by slysoft (free)
http://www.slysoft.com/en/virtual-clonedrive.html
using clone driver mount the iso as a drive letter.

Now when you go to this virtual drive it will be the contents of the iso

Done and easy
