problem with Back Track 2 installation


Ok well i managed to do most of the installation process right up to where i need to reboot i reboot without the cd in the drie and i get


"Direct boot from floppy is no longer supported.
Please use a boot loader program instead.

Remove disk and press any key to reboot . . ."

I have no floppy drive at all so there cant be a floppy in the drive and the cd is not in what is this "boot loader" program it is talking about and how do i get one?

Thanks,
Kriogenic.

Also check your BIOS for order of booting.
