I have some partial help. You can "extract" an ISO file to the hard drive with winrar. The stumbling block is you need to create a bootable floppy that tells your machine that you want to do a hard drive install. Unless there's a way to boot from your c: drive and create a boot record for your BIOS to find there somewhere...
