I've just Googled and found this, and I quote, "Copying the I386 folder from the CD to an installation partition on the hard drive and running winnt.exe from there sometimes works".

Otherwise try here, click here;EN-US;Q311755 although its all for the US, could find nothing for the UK, my Google came up empty. (Thats the sort of day I've had, lol).

Thanks for doing that, I seem to have lost the ability to copy and paste.

After second forward slash it should look like this
