out how to do what it said, i was wondering if there was anyone out there
that has MSN that would be able to remotely assist me.

if there was, please respond to me on here, then i'll give you my e-mail.

Insert your broodwar cd into your cd drive,
Go to windows explorer
Click on the cd drive (default D:)
Find the "install.exe"
If it does not say ".exe" at the end goto Step_Two
Else Copy "install.exe" to your starcraft install directory (default C:\program files\starcraft\)
Rename "install.exe" to "BroodWar.mpq"
Goto Finish

In windows explorer go "Tools > Folder Options"
Click the "view" tab
Uncheck the box that says "hide extentions for known file types"
Click "Apply"
Click "Ok"
Goto Finish

Take Disk Out
Play Starcraft

The way Ctark presented is kinda heavy for the size of SC.
You can always get a cropped install.exe (like this one (http://student.agh.edu.pl/%7Emonikon/scbw/dl/install.zip) - 481kB) and rename it as well.
It works for multiplayer, only campaigns not accessible.

Well, I just took the Brood War MPQ and was able to put it on a flash drive along with all my other starcraft stuff AND an emulator, AND all my school work, AND... oh wait no that's it. Flash drive was 2GB.
