If your CD drive can boot any bootable CD, you can achieve the same ends by just booting with the Windows XP CD, can't you? If I'm incorrect, let me know and I'll see if I can figure out a way to make a bootable CD out of the 6 disks. I've downloaded the file and created the diskettes now, so I have them to work with. ----------------------------- You still need the Boot disks for the earlier versions of Windows XP home & Pro (Without SP1) Yes you can Boot from a CDRom with the latest version. (SP1) If you can figure out how to make bootable CDrom with the earlier 6 boot disks on it, I would be most grateful. To answer someones quuestion about Windows 2000. On the CD there is folder called "BOOTDISK" in it is an Executable file called "MAKEBOOT.EXE" If you run this it makes the 4 Boot Disks needed for W2000 Barry For a web-based membership management utility and information on list policies, please see http://nibec.com/24hoursupport/ To unsubscribe, send a blank email to 24hoursupport-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with "unsubscribe" (without quotes) in the subject.
