    As Cyber said, Go into the BIOS and check what the boot order is.

    i have the boot order right its just that for windows me i have to have the floppy in and go to boot with cd rom support. Then when i go to that to install windows it searches for a cdrom drive while running off the floppy. But there is no cd rom in there cause i have the floppy in.
