Issue -

Now, I'm not at home, otherwise i'd create a bootdisk on my slack laptop, I've got a 1GB sandisk and a 2GB 'cruzer" with that wierd software they put on it. I tried to set it up the same way I setup my windows from USB, and ran into BOOTMGR not found. Perhaps I'm setting it up wrong from windows. Anyone have an idea how I can get this setup? I know the steps from linux, but never tried from windows. Anything would be most appreciated. i'm installing Slack64 on my 40GB drive so I can test linux compiles. Unless someone knows if anyone has put slack64 into 3 ISOs like 32bit.

Thanks in advance.

Instructions are out there for burning boot cds from windows on each linux distro's site.
Use one - then you're in linux.
