MORE INFORMATION

When you install one of the programs listed at the beginning of this article to run from the hard disk, the program runs more efficiently
because you no longer need to change CD-ROMs or DVD-ROMs when accessing linked articles, interactivities, or videos. Additionally,
you are not restricted by the slower speed of your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.

NOTE: This type of installation requires approximately 650 megabytes (MB) of available hard disk space for each CD-ROM or as much
as 8 gigabytes (GB) of available hard disk space for each DVD-ROM that you install to the hard disk.

b. In the left pane, double-click the hard disk onto which you want to install the Encarta program.
c. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Folder.
d. Type EE2000 for Microsoft Encarta Encyclopedia 2000, or ERS2000 for Microsoft Encarta Reference Suite 2000, and
then press ENTER.
2. Insert the first CD-ROM or DVD-ROM into the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. Press and hold down the SHIFT key as you insert the
CD-ROM or DVD-ROM to prevent Setup from starting automatically.

4. On the Edit menu, click Select All.

7. Repeat steps 2 through 6 for each additional CD-ROM or DVD-ROM.
8. Insert the installation CD-ROM or DVD-ROM into the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. Press and hold down the SHIFT key as you
insert the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM to prevent Setup from starting automatically.
9. In the left pane of Windows Explorer, click the new folder that you created in step 1.
10. In the right pane, double-click the Setup.exe file.NOTE: Before you run the Setup.exe file from the folder that you created in
step 1, make sure that the Encarta Installation and Resources CD-ROM is in the CD-ROM drive. If you are installing the DVD
