Alex, If you are really desperate or have a "just gonna do this for fun" attitude you could do the following:
1) If you have more than 1 computer, steal the Floppy Drive for the time it takes you to install. 2) If you have a laplink or even a parallel port xover cable you can use that to install. 3) If you don't have either of the above you really are in a situation that doesn't merit the time IMHO.
