Insert the CD Rom and navigate to CD-ROM Drive:\VALUEADD\MSFT\NTBACKUP

Double-click the Ntbackup.msi file to start the wizard that installs Backup

When the wizard is complete, click Finish.

Click Browse this CD.


In Windows Explorer, double-click the ValueAdd folder, then Msft, and then Ntbackup.

Backup is installed by default on XP Pro - it's Home which has to have it installed as described above.
