Install mandrive without cdrom


I have a older IBM 570E laptop without CDROM. Trying to install Mandrive, I unzipped the Mandrive ISO to c partition. How can I do the next steps?

I have not yet seen a successful install of anykind performed after "unzipping" an iso. If the iso files are on the drive, there is a method used for installing. Do you have a floppy drive?

Yes, I have a floppy drive, actually I tried to use MS DOS6.22 to boot PC, and in distils folder, I typed "autorun" to install but system responsed me it can just run on win32 environment.

There is a boot floppy image from which you can boot the computer and install from the iso's on the drive. You must boot linux of course!
