Every Linux distribution out there is bootable from one of the CD's (usually the first disk, boots). Just go into your bios, set the boot order for CD-rom first, put the CD in the drive and restart your machine...

I am afraid you 've misunderstood me. I 've successfully installed the OS. However, I have to choose boot from Winme or Linux. If I choose to Boot from Linux, I have to insert a floppy disk before pressing the power button, otherwise it will go for Winme. I would like to convert the floppy disk (made in the process of installation of RedHat 9.0)to CD.
Possible ? How ?
