[access-uk] Re: Ubuntu linux.

Hi,

As long as you don't leave a CD in the drive, the system will boot normally.

HTH. 


All the best

Right George, I thought you would press either F2 or F8 while the computer 
is starting to access the BIOS, and then you choose from a list where to 
boot from... but I didn't realise that choice would then become the default 
booting choice. Well, that didn't happen when I reinstalled Windows and 
selected boot from CD. When the reinstallation was complete the computer 
started normally...

Am I confusing things together? Please explain.

After accessing the BIOS, if I can remember how many times I need to arrow 
down to select boot from CD, I then can boot from CD when I need to use 
Linux, restart the computer when I'm done and all then is back to normal. 
Would this way work?

To use the above method first I will need to get some sighted help to know 
how many times I need to arrow to choose CD to boot from... but if that then

would make the computer always try to boot from CD first as you said, then I

need to think of another way.

Any guidance is very much welcomed.
Amro
