    I need to extract a few files (.dll) from the Windows XP CD.

    Any help is appreciated.

    BTW, the files I'm trying to extract are in the /I386 folder and have .dl_ extension instead of .dll

    Thanks in advance

    If you want to copy file.dl_ from your the i386 directory on the XP CD to the temp directory on your c: drive and if your cd drive is d: drive, the command would look as follows:

    expand d:\i386\file.dl_ c:\temp\file.dll

    NOTE: There is a space after the underscore and before c:
