    "The Evo does have two USB connections,so you can add your own USB floppy drive (though Compaq doesn't sell one for the N200), but to gain other missing features you must dock the Evo onto one of Compaq's optional mobile expansion units."

    Yes, I do have usb external floppy driver and usb external cd driver. I installed windows 2000 using the external cd. First, the computer started reading and installing the necessary files. Then, I clicked installed windows. Once windows started the installation process, it stopped indicating there is not cd driver to continue the installation. In other words, it seems that evo n200 does not support usb external conections when I try to install the operation system.Please advise!
