I assume you have an Award BIOS. Restart your computer and press DELETE on startup. Go to 'ADVANCE BIOS FEATURES' and change, by use of the 'PAGE UP' and 'PAGE DOWN' keys, the First Boot Device to read FLOPPY. Change the second boot device to HDD-O, and the third to CD-ROM. Press the ESCAPE key on the top left of your keyboard. Go to EXIT & SAVE SETTINGS and press the ENTER key. At the prompt press 'Y' and ENTER and the machine will reboot. All movements within the BIOS main headings are done with the arrow keys.
