    I have two regular CD-R's with the file names:

    CD1 -
    BOOTCAT.BIN
    BOOTIMG.BIN
    ghost.exe
    Shp.gho

    CD2 -
    GHOST.EXE
    SHP00001.GHS

    Both have are filled up to 700MB. It probably has Windows NT on it or something. The computer right now has XP Pro w/ SP2 installed but theres some software on the ghost images that we want so we're just gonna load them up. How do I do this?

    Do I need to format the current partion first since it already has an OS installed?

    no, grab a ghost cd (not the image, but that actual symantec cd that lets you install ghost) and install ghost on your windows machine. You can then open the image files with that and "explore" the contents.

    however, you cannot copy an individual program or software product over.

    Well I tried to boot from the first cd and it went through some process, then I put in the second cd. After it reached 100%, it gave me this error.

    Code:
    ABORT: 19235, Decompression error -3
     
    Invalid media type reading drive A
    Abort, Retry, Fail?

    Which is why the Jolly's suggestion is even more important to follow since you may be able to still recover the info on it. I would suggest you copy the image off of the CDR's though before you start.
