boot from floppy to cd help
hey, i recently scored an old pentium lappy and I wanna throw on a linux distro. Unfortunately it is limited to booting from its floppy drive or HDD. I have an external CD-Rom drive attatched via parallel port but it isnt recognized until windows boots.
The question is, is there a boot floppy I can get somewhere that will just install some drivers and then try to boot from my CD-ROM drive.
Any help would be appreciated
Re: boot from floppy to cd help
You would need a GRUB/LILO boot floppy that can recognize it, and also we'd need to know what distro you plan on loading, anyways I can't help you as I am not a hardware and GRUB guru, sorry.
