Does this have to be a floppy? My FDD is not playing and I want to create a Rescue / Boot CD. If i set my BIOS to boot from CD ROM is this feasible??

Turn All Of Your Old Bootable Floppies Into Bootable Cd's [the easy way]

First Of All You Need A Cd-Burner, Nero Burning Rom v5.5 or higher
A Floppie Drive, A Blank CDR Disk
When You Have Everything:
Load Up Nero With Your Floppy In The Drive And Blank Cd In The Cd-Recorder
Close The Wizard
Hold Ctrl + N
Until A Box Appears
Scroll Down The List Until You Reach CDROM (Boot)
Click It
Bootable Logical Drive Must Be A:
Click The Burn TAB
Click New
Click File
Then Write Cd
Then Write
Done

Thanks to Chris Coombes for above. Nero is available here. Sure there are other applications that do it but Nero seems to have an edge up on drive compatibility.

All you are doing is slipstreamining SP1 and XP and making it bootable and this is a lot of hard work and is mainly for someone upgrading say a dozen computers and not for making a basic bootable CD.

Point taken. :-)
