WIN 2K BOOT DISK

By rubsmong ·
i have a win 2k autorun cd which was supplied with one of our older machines--this cd is not bootable but it can autorun and can only be installed in a GUI environment??? i wanted to install it on a different system---on exploring the cd i found out that it has a folder called boot---on exploring this folder i found it has an executable file makebootdisk32.exe---on launching this file it launches a dos like window which guides one on easy sure ways on how to make four high density win2k bootable diskettes---it sure does create this diskettes and they sure do boot---Problem is my other system is running on win xp and i wanted to downgrade it to win2k (good reason)--this cd cant autorun since this machine has a higher OS--i surely could boot with the diskettes BUT my machine doesnt have a diskette drive--it came with a seal and it is under warranty so my opening it and connecting a floppy drive is out of the question since any tampering with the seal voids the warranty--so i was thinking on how i cud burn a bootable cd using this diskettes--make the cd boot as the diskettes do--- so i used nero express 6.0---when it required that i specify the source i gave it the path and inserted the first bootable diskette---surely the cd is burnt and it sure boots but only upto some point where it asks "please insert disk 2 and press any key to continue" surely i got no drive so how i do that is@!@$---i went back and burnt this cd but this time round i included the contents of disk 2-4 in it--i rebooted but still the same prob---any ideas on how i can burn this cd without the " insert disk X" issue---i need a bootable cd with all the 4 disks images---which file shud i edit???? or how else can this cd be made??? HELP.
