Angry Boot cd from ext usb cdrom (not supported in bios)


Hi

I have an ext usb cdrom that i want to be able to boot from. I am able to boot from a RH9 installation diskette and have the installation continue from the cdrom. I hoping i could use the same kind of principal to boot a typical bootcd (at least one with a live-linux distribution or linux installation cdrom).

Smart BootManager will probably work for you. Good luck!

no usb support listed

i've tried Smart BootManager and it does not see tje USB cdrom? the documentation says that it only works with ide and pcmcia cdroms.

is is possible to boot with a linux boot disk w/ usb support and have grub boot the cdrom as it would a hard drive with the chainloader option?
