Trouble Installing XP Pro....HELP

Trying to install XP Pro, having two problems - seem to be driver related:

- when installing from the CD-ROM, it gets to the point where it restarts the computer, and puts up the message:

Insert the CD labeled WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL CD-ROM
into your CD-ROM drive

Press ENTER when ready

....the CD has been and is still in the drive - but it can't seem to recognize it.

...I've removed Easy CD Creator 3, as I thought that may be causing the problem, but no luck.

- I then created a i386 folder on the hard drive and ran setup from there. It gets further, but puts up the message:

Setup cannot copy the file AMDK6.SYS

.....if I ESC to ignore, I get a message that WINDOWS could be damaged when I next boot.

It displays the same message foe about eight files....for example CBIDF2K.SYS.

My config is an IBM Aptiva AMD-K6/2 300Mhz, with 192 Meg.\

Any help would be muchly appreciated.

For starters Easy cd 3 is not compatable with xp. Looks like your problem lies there somewhere. Try doing a system restore to before easy cd 3.

Thanks for the post. I think it's an original, but I bought it from a small local place I haven't dealt with before. I'm not technical - where do I check what it's labeled?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
