Wow, it works! That is PRECISELY what I was wanting. Thank you ever so much!

Would it be possible to make a CD work the same way, and if so, what steps do I need to take?
Thanks again,
Les


Cool Beans. Glad it worked. If talking about making a cdrom boot without bios support for booting a cdrom drive. I made a smart boot manager floppy disc instead because smart boot manager supports pcmcia cdrom boot while PLOP does not.

How I did it (I used Windows 95 to make the floppy this time instead of Puppy Linux.

If talking about making a PLOP bootable bootmanager cd disk instead. I never made a how to for that as I figured that should be a breeze . Plus there is tons of how to's already showing this. Just google it.

Ok, thanks again for the tips. My internship starts tomorrow, so it may be a while before I report back.

OK, that worked too!
I had previously tried that using a different computer and burning program, but this time it worked perfectly (using Image Burn). Thanks again for the help. Now I just need to purchase a couple of credit card CD's and I will be able to boot almost anyplace.
