NetBeui xp

I'm trying to instal Netbeui onto my xp, I'm following these instructions:

"This page describes how to install the NetBEUI protocol on a Windows XP-based computer.

NetBEUI is a non-routable protocol suitable for small networks. Support for this protocol in Microsoft Windows has been discontinued. If you are instructed by any product support personnel to install this protocol as a temporary measure, follow the instructions below:

• Open the following folder in the Windows XP CD: ValueAdd\Msft\Net\Netbeui.

• Copy nbf.sys into the %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\directory.

• Copy netnbf.inf into the %SYSTEMROOT%\INF\ directory.

• Open network connection properties and click the "Install..." button to add the NetBEUI protocol."

Here come my question. How do I
"Copy nbf.sys into the %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\directory."
And this:

" Copy netnbf.inf into the %SYSTEMROOT%\INF\ directory."
I need someone to explain this in a simple step by step, as I just can't get my head around it

%systemroot% basically denotes the folder in which Windows is installed.

For most Windows XP computers, %systemroot% would be C:\Windows

Insert the Windows CD.

Within Windows Explorer navigate to ValueAdd\Msft\Net\Netbeui.

Copy nbf.sys into the

C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS directory

and netnbf.inf into the

C:\Windows\INF directory

%SYSTEMROOT% = the WINDOWS folder in ur C:
shud be called Windows if u havent changed it at startup.
