Place this DVD in the drive and restart
your system. If your computer
doesn’t start, make sure your BIOS is
configured to boot from a DVD. Enter
the BIOS setup menu (see your
vendor documentation) and make
sure DVD boot is enabled and the
DVD drive appears before the hard

contents to a temporary directory
