    I have a new montana and a new copy of CNNA on a disc and my notebook dont have a cd reader. I have copied the CNNA disc to a thumbdrive to install on my net book and I cant make it load.

    +1. I had the same? problem trying to install from a thumb drive and had to just copy the CD onto the notebook computer via my local network.

    Setting up the network was a little tricky. I can't remember the details but I had to go thru a Network Setup wizard on my desktop and create a networking architecture file on a thumb drive and then copy that to the notebook to get the network up and running. I was going from XP on the desktop to Windows 7 on the notebook and got a few error messages, but it works great now.
