Installing Without CD - Help

Hello:

We just leased a dedicated server and now want to install SQL Server
2000. We though we could just copy the contents of the CD to a folder
on the server and run AUTORUN. While it does load the splash screen,
when we click install SQL Server Components, the demoshield splash
screen comes up and then disappears. The install stops.

Any ideas? Is this even possible?

Thanks in advance.

Hi

This should be possible.

If you are using remote control software it may not be displaying the
dialogue correctly.

Instead of the autorun, just trying running SETUP.BAT.
