reinstalling WinNT4.0

Hello All,

I'm trying to clean up an old machine and get it back up and running
normally. I've formatted my home Win98 machine several times and have
always been able to figure it out but this one is stumping me.

I have a computer that has lost administrative access. It is also Old and
needs to be cleaned up anyway so I figured I'd just wipe it and start fresh.

But before I did that I went to bootdisk.com and got the WinNT 4.0 boot
disks. It seems to work fine Until it asks for the CD-ROM. when it asks me
to put the Windows NT Workstation CD-ROM in the CD-ROM drive it won't read
it. The set up Says that it Identified the CD-ROM and I heard it Humm a bit
at that time so I'm pretty sire it was working. But when I hit Enter it
just pops back to the "Please Insert the compact disk labeled Windows NT
Workstation CD-ROM" "Ress Endter when Ready" again and again.

Am I missing part of the process?

A long shot, but... I hit this once when I mistakenly used the boot
diskettes for NT 3.51. Or perhaps you have diskettes for NT 4 Server? Check
the diskettes.
