We just installed a new disk drive on our PC and the plan was to re-install
Windows 2000.

We made a set of boot disks from the CD and everything worked just great
until we got to the last step.

When we pressed enter to begin the installation process, we got a message
that a CD-ROM could not be found.

Help!
