What with the size of today's HDDs, I got into the habit a while back of copying the contents of the install CDs for the OS and major apps into a \CDs folder immediately after doing the install. Or sometimes before hand, then doing the install from the copy in \CDs\Office2003 or whatever.

I *literally* can't tell you how much trouble that's saved because after the first time it demands the CD and I point it at the copy on the HDD, there are no further demands. It just goes and gets what it thinks it wants.
