View Full Version : upgrading issue/cd to diskette

I want to upgrade the software on my friend's laptop. She wants a word processor on it. It does not have a cd rom drive. I want to put Microsoft Word on it and also AOL. How can I go about doing this?

At the risk of stating the obvious u need to get the software installed to your HD to run it. Normally this is done via CD-ROM. The only other options are via floppy drive or the Internet. Can she have a CD-ROM drive installed in her laptop?

Thatís all I can think of at the moment but others may have some ideas.

Best of luck......Son of Zeus.

Another alternative to getting a cd rom or the interent or floppies, is to hook up a network card onto the computer and toss programs across a network. Of course anyone with a network of their own generally will have a cd rom for the laptop, but if it was at my house that is what I would do.
