    Need to Boot from CD

    I want to use Devil Linux on an old computer that I will be using as a firewall. The problem is that the computer cannot boot from CD becasue its so old. Is there a boot disk out there that will allow me to be able to load the CD?

    That means your bios is old. The only thing you could do is change the motherboard.

    You can find old motherboards(P1 or P2) even at a junkyard.

    Try this procedure:
    1. Go to Cmos-setup
    2. Go t o Bios Setup
    3. Set CD-rom as the 1st boot, 2nd HDD0, and 3rd Floppy.
    4. Save and exit.

    thats all...! it will now boot from your CD-rom....
