    Advice please:

    Have 'Fdisk' and 'Format C' a 40GB hard drive. Scandisk shows no

    e:\setup (on the WIN ME CD ROM) peforms system check and advises system
    needs so many free bytes on C drive

    Then the DOS prompt returns awaiting a comand.

    I thought setup should continue automatically from the CD. If not, what
    command should I enter now?

    Any ideas on what could be going wrong.

    Try some command line switches on setup:

    Did you use a winME floppy to Fdisk, and format ?.
    Does the BIOS see the drive ?. All one partition ?.
    Clean the CD.

    Sounds like you did not correctly partition the drive...

    did you reboot after you ran fdisk?
