Can't install, can't upgrade R&R ( on T42)

I had to replace the hard drive on my T42. Then booted the Factory Restore CDs and reinstalled all 6 CDs to get back to a factory-fresh configuration. The system came back to life, but the Rescue and Recovery application has vanished. There is an R&R on the hidden partition, but there is no app on the C: drive. Hence, I can't make any backups (much less restore from them).


I downloaded R&R V3.1 and tried to install it.  It failed with an error, telling me that a more recent version of the software is already present.


I looked at R&R 4.0, but the release notes indicate that it is not supported on the T42. 


So I'm stumped. Can't get back to the original configuration, can't move forward.


Suggestions gratefully received. 

T42 Type 2374, WinXP SP3
