Floppy Boot disk


Hi,
I am a newbie in the Linux environnement and I wanted to know if there is the equivalent of a Windows Floppy boot disk for Linux. Because I have a problem to boot on a CD disk.

Many thanks in advance.

And if you have problems booting from a cd, then it may be due to an incorrect boot order in the BIOS. You may want to use google for that too.

Something easier than this!? You just download the file under windows, run it (it will install the boot manager on a floppy), then boot the floppy and then you can choose to boot from the CD.

With btmgr, you don't need any custom floppy image Just boot the btmgr floopy, and then select the CD in the list.
