What would be a good way also, go to another machine and copy the cd's
contents (leave anything
non setup related) to the hdd from the target machine.
Then put the hdd back in the original machine just run the installation from
its own hard disk.
Another option (and you'd wanna be _really_ desperate for this one) would be
to grab a large amount of
floppy disks and format them all to 1.7 MB and copy over all the cab files
etc to each disk in sequence.
Then you can install from floppy à la Windows 95 / 3.11.
I would suggest keeping a bottle of vodka handy going that route, or else
insanity could result.
