Have an Internal ZIP drive or have an external drive of some sort hooked up
when you installed?

There is a possible solution.. but it is not recommended.

You could even use the "SUBST" command and point some or all of your "G"
drive to "C"..

(Something like "subst c: g:\"..)

The best solution is to unhook the device that caused the problem and
reinstall...
