Does anyone know a reliable way of installing windows 2000 professional on a machine that does not have a CD ROM drive. I'm thinking I'll be able to copy the CD to a hard drive and then plug the hard drive into the machine without the CD rom so that the install can happen from the hard drive. The bootable CD disk made with MakeBoot.exe creates a disk that then goes and looks for a CD drive -- no good for me. I want it to look for the install files from a hard drive. Any suggestions?
