    AFAIK you got floppies with it, and then inserted your CD later.

    Back then it really depended on the hardware that you were installing NT 4 on. Windows NT 4 came with floppy disc's that you could use if the PC couldn't boot from the CD, but if the PC could then it'll just use the CD.

    So yes - depending on the hardware used in yesteryear :)
