Fax setup in XP home, problem

  Jonah1000 21:19 18 Nov 2003

i've tried to set up fax in XP home edition, followed these instructions:

Fax is not installed by default during Windows Setup. To install the Fax component: Open Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel. Click Add/Remove Windows Components. In the Windows Components Wizard, select the Fax Services check box, and then follow the instructions on your screen.

Put in CD, hit next but nothing happens, it says copy file from: F:\i386, but nothings happening.

Can anyone help?

F:\i386 is a folder not a file.
