How can I use an unattended answer script when installing through a bootable CD-ROM?

A. With new machines being able to boot off of CD-ROM's, its obviously not possible to specify an unattended answer file via the CD-ROM.

Create your .SIF file (the Windows 2000 unattended answer format) and save to a floppy disk as name winnt.sif. Insert the disk when booting from the CD-ROM and the winnt.exe program searches for a:\winnt.sif during installation.
