When Windows 2000 Server install says to use Smartdrive, it means it

I've been watching this install in Virtual PC for what must be hours now. I'm beginning to think I should have spent that extra 30 minutes finalising the boot disc to get smartdrv configured.

Win2k setup advises you run with smartdrive, I didn't quite understand till now how much of a difference it makes.

If that SmartDrive question comes up in the exam you'll be well sorted.

Lol, aye. You're not far wrong on this being the way to learn.

I bailed out, got smartdrv.exe off the internet, changed the autoexec.bat file and formatted C: to do the install again, in half an hour of VPC time it is already half way.

You can make a bootable CD for win 2003 here: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=297

I've never tried it, but it doesn't seem to take too long. You can then try to use nero to burn the ISO image to DVD. No idea if the bootable CD will allow you to read a DVD.

Give it a go.
