When you download the Setup disks, the download contains only one large program file. When you run the downloaded file, it extracts the files. You receive the following message:
This program creates the Setup boot disks for Windows XP. To create these disks, you need to provide 6 blank, formatted, high-density disks.
Please specify the floppy drive to copy the images to:
Type the drive letter for the floppy disk drive (this is typically drive A). After you type the floppy disk drive letter, you receive the following message:
Insert one of these disks into drive drive letter:. This disk will become the Windows XP Setup Boot Disk.
Press any key when you are ready.
When you press a key, the downloaded file starts to extract and copy the files. Continue to insert the blank disks as you are prompted to do this until all six disks are created. If the process is interrupted, you must run the downloaded program file again to create all six disks.
Make sure that you label each disk appropriately with the number that is specified by the program. You must use the disks in the correct order during the Setup process.
Step 3: Start your computer by using the first Setup disk to begin a new Windows XP installation
After you create all six disks, insert the first disk in the floppy disk drive, and then restart the computer. The computer must be configured to start from the floppy disk drive. You may have to modify the BIOS settings on your computer to do this.
The Setup process starts. Insert the other floppy disks when you are prompted. You must use the Windows XP CD-ROM to finish the Setup process.
hope it helps
