My drivers are on the cdrom, and I don't have a copy of them on my bootdisk, missing "mscd000, or mscd001", I have many copies of "mscdex.exe".
I question to you is where can I find this program? "mscd000, or mscd001"

Ok, you must make a bootable DOS floppy diskette, or a bootable DOS CDrom if the machine has no floppy drive. You can download Windows executable DOS boot disk images here: http:bootdisk.com. I prefer DRDOS 7. There is usually a flashing utility and bios image file that you must copy to the floppy boot disk.
If your not very DOSSY, after the machine boots from the boot disk, you do a DIR, and find the name of the flashing utility. You enter that name at the command prompt: A:/. like this:
That will give you help on how to use the utility. But newer machines have smart bios that only need one file put on the boot disk, and everything is automatic.
Making a bootable CDrom requires special software that you must buy. Or you can use a Knoppix live CD, but you'll need one CD writer and one CDrom. It's ok if both are writers, or even if one is a DVD drive.
Bootdisk.com has bootable CDrom image files. But I only know how to get files inside the image file using Linux. There are programs for Windows that can edit a CD image file. Google 'edit .iso file. And don't pay money. There are good freeware programs. One is called daemontools.
You must copy the bios file(s) to the CD image, and burn the CD. Then boot with it, and do like I described above.
if you know your harddrives' manufacturer, go to their site and download their disk managment software, which is usually a self-extracting .exe file which will create a floppy disk. Create the floppy, and start your machine with the floppy in your a: drive, and use the tools displayed to format the drive.
Another option is to go to bootdisks.com and grab a windows '98 bootdisk with cdrom drivers, start your machine and when you get a Dos prompt type a: fdisk and follow the prompts.
The hard drive needs to be low level formatted, fdisk'd and FAT32 formatted prior to ME install. I don't know where to get free copies, but I've used both On Track's drive manager and Acronis v10. Bothe are very good your purposes. Both retail +- $50.00
I have the same computer except it is the 2400 Dimension. If you have a win 98 bootdisk which is a lot smaller file and easier to use insert in a:/ startup with cdrom support when its done loading it goes to a:/. When thats done your cdrom drive has been changed to E:/ if you have your XP install disk put it in your cdrom. Ok beside where it says a:/ type in e:/ which changes it to e:/ drive when thats done type in setup and it should start your install there should be a choice to repair at some point click on that and it should repair. If by chance that don't work let me know and we will do something different.You can get a 98 bootdisk at http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm just follow instructions how to make the disk. Let me know God Bless Greg
If your Toshiba Portégé 3110CT is in need of a bootdisk you may have found that it's a bit of a problem finding the drivers to access the CDROM. The "oakcdrom.sys" driver that comes with most bootdisks doesn't work.
What you need is the "arccd.sys" driver and some amendments to the "config.sys" and "autoexec.bat" files. Fortunately, I've already sorted and zipped it ready to go
using edlin you can enter
for config sys
device=c:\dos\cdrom.sys /d:mscd001 /l:e
for autoexec bat
himem.sys is the upper memory manager
emm386.exe is the 'gate' to allow access or combine all of it
noems turns off expanded memory
cdrom.sys is the CD Driver - yours may have a different name
/d:mscd001 refers to the name of the CD Rom Drive (generic)
/l:e refers to the drive letter (e:) to designate for the CD
Hope that helps
