disk for xp pro and installation takes me all the way to floopy disk #6 but after that it says that it did not find cdrom and could not install windows xp, ok now that you know this please tell me
Q- If I was to buy a cd rom drive for this computer will I need to use the 6 disk set for booting?
Q-If I was to buy a cd rom drive can I buy a cd rom with "usb" connection?
Q- will this computer support usb cd rom drive for booting and if it doesn't can I use my 6 floopy boot disks and maybe isntall the usb cd rom @ the last disk step will my computer read this cd rom drive?

Q-is possible to make a usb boot in this type of computer?
thanks for any help guy I know is lots of question so please maybe answer anything you know thanks for help againg....
1.If you purchase an external USB CD drive you will not need to use your floppy discs for booting. 2. You can connect a USB CD drive to your system. 3. Your system will recognize any device plugged into your USB drive. 4. There is no CD drive available for internal installation in your computer. 5. With the USB CD drive plugged in and the windows installation disc inserted, your computer should take you through the setup program automatically.
