with respect, as I understand it, you are only nOW creating your "rescue discs",..is that right??? or are they a set of about 10 floppies that you have already created and are now trying to use????
am just wondering ( a mere novice here), whether you CAN create a "useable" set of discs at this "late stage",, or am I wrong???
(and this has set ME "thinking" with a similar issue that I must start a thread on to prevent my hijacking THIS one!!)
