    When installing programs I get an error message about my A: drive??

    I installed win2000 yesterday - it went fine, and when I started installing programs - Photoshop, zonealarm and the likes, I get a pop up message box which says:
    (FileName varies)
    ------------------------------
    FileName.exe - No Disk
    X There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive A:
    Cancel Try Again Continue
    ------------------------------
    But I'm not intsallin gfrom the A drive at all. Then if I hit Cancel or Continue, it skips the file and continues to install.
    Once done installing, when I open (some of) the programs, this same message pops up and I have to Cancel through it and the programs open.

    What's going on - and what's the fix??

    Thanks,
    Matz

    No I didn't - cuz I had so many problems recognizing the CDROM drive, so I installed ME, then upgraded to win 2000 with conversion of the C drive from FAT32 NTFS.

    Is this the problem - that it wasn't a true clean install?

    Thanks,

    Yes, I checked th elink out. It was a great resource, and even though I couldn't find anything referring to my floppy problem, there seem to be a million weird issues along similar lines.

    Thanks,
