Hi Jim,
the first question is how did you burn the *disk1 file? You have to burn it as 
a disk image, not just a data cd. when you put the *disk one into your 
machine when windows is running, do you see just one file on it, or many? If 
you are using windows to burn the cd, (windows is good for something ;)    ) 
you'll probably have to use a separate burning program like nero and choose 
disk image. (I'm just getting started here myself, so if your burning under 
something besides windows, ask here again for a how to)
