In order to get things started after you have booted to the startup disk, you can type a single command to begin the transfer from the CD to the hard drive. Assuming your local hard drive is C: and your CD-ROM drive is H:, the following command could be used:

XCOPY32 H:\I386\*.* C:\I386\ /E
If you wish to have the system verify that each file was read and written with 100% accuracy, simply add the /V switch after the /E switch shown above. This command will copy all of the files in the I386 folder on the installation CD as well as all of the folders and files underneath it over to the C: drive in a corresponding I386 folder
