Boot Disk

I want to install Red Hat 9; but my Computer doesn't boot from its CD Drive. Is there a way I can make a floppy boot disc that will allow me to use my CD Drive, so I can install Linux?

Look on the CDROM in dosutils directory for rawrite

Target diskette drive: a:
Insert disk - press Enter.

Should then write the disk

All from memory so messages and locations may be a bit different to above
