You might have bad floppies.......

Get some new floppies, make sure they are HD type, then try this site for your install to floppies:
Hope all works out for you.
Oh by the way, do you have your Windows code with you? If not then you will have to buy a new Windows system disk OR you can buy on-line through Microsoft OR, yet again, buy a external DVD drive, they are pretty cheap now-a-days. If you have the cd with you and it is giving you the error then give it a gentle clean with a soft cloth that they use with glasses. Then re.try the disk again. Good luck.
