Looks like CFS2 is very picky about CD-ROM drives. Using winzip I was able to unzip and copy contents of CFS2.CAB wherever I liked, but the stupid CFS installation program hangs up when reading it. Also the bastards from MS protected this screwed up piece of junk, so I can't install from hard drive after copying all installation files there.
Damn them, morons.
I'm freaking pissed!!!

Try this, Click Start Menu/Shutdown/Restart in MS-Dos. At the c:windows> prompt Type deltree c:\windows\temp Then hit enter. Type exit and then retry loading off the CDROM. Good luck.

Thanks man !

I saw that tip too, on MS website. I fixed this problem by turning off DMA and turning on synchronous data transfer for the CD-ROM drive. It's strange that no other installer ever "complained" about it. The job of writing an installer is usually given to interns (at least at one company I worked for), so I'm not surprised they messed it up.
