You should nevertheless be able to install Linux directly from the CD ROM
drive. From DOS, change to the drive letter of the CD drive (D: or E:). Change
to either the \dosutils or \autoboot directory. Look for either an
"autoboot.bat" or "cdrom.bat" file. Run it, and this should kickstart the
Linux installation process.

In the worst-case scenario, you might have to copy "autoboot.bat" to your hard
drive and edit it.

Good luck.
