When starting the PC from power on keep tapping the del key until the BIOS set up screen appears. Select the CDROM setting for boot devices as 1st Boot. Save and exit. Restart the PC. Select to Install from the CDROM when the option appears. When it gives you the choice of directory to install to select other, it may say C:windows.000. Delete the .000, then continue the install. Don't forget to change the first boot device back to Floppy in the BIOS.
