Tip: boot usb / cdrom even if motherboard doesn't support it


usb

^ This boot floppy allows a computer to boot off usb even if this is not supported. I think it may only work with knoppix. However it may be possible to adapt the floppy. If this mirror goes down search for "featherlinux"; this is a knoppix remaster that fits into a 64mb usb stick.

cdrom

^ This boot floppy allows you to boot from cdrom even if the motherboard doesn't support it.


I have used these 2 boot floppies to get my p90 to boot off usb and cdrom.

This is extremely rare knowledge.
