I am trying to install windows xp from the harddrive. For some reason everytime I try to install from the rom it freezes up. So i installed 98 and then copied the i386 folder to the c drive and then ran install. Everything worked great!!!!!!! Love it.

Anyway. I was hoping someone could tell me what are the commands to copy the i386 folder in dos so i do not have 98se stored on the drive. I prefer a clean install.

Please tell me how to do this. Step by step. Please be detailed. I was raised in a gui generation. lol.

Thanks for your time. Very much appreciated.

copy will not copy files from any subfolders. You should beware, too, that since you installed this way, there's a good chance your file system is FAT32 rather than NTFS, which can affect what you do with XP, depending on your level of skills with networking, etc.
