umm get a new cd drive? or get this thing i can't remember what it;s called but it plugs in to a usb slot and you can slot a hdd in it (made for tuning a hdd into a external hd) maybe you could use that but that would mean taking out your hd so a new cd drive is the easiest way

Apparently, you don't want to buy a replacement drive and I assume you don't want to buy an external CDROM either, so that leaves one long shot since you have a floppy drive.

Supposedly, you can create a network boot disk and use the CDROM from another PC.
