Answers :

Go into your BIOS by pressing F2 and make sure the cd drive is the first boot device. Install the operating system cd first and go thru that. Then you'll need to install the drivers and utilities disk. After that you can put the applications cd in and choose what programs you want to install off of that.

Thats the order you should install the cd's. Assuming your hard drive is good then everything should go thru. If you need more help then let me know and I'll help you as much as I can. I'll be here for a while.

When you boot up off of the operating system cd. It will say press any key to boot up off of the cd, be sure to do that so it boots up off of the cd and goes into the system setup.
