i have an old box i wanted to throw linux on, 167mhz, 8gb, 64mb ram. the cd drive is not bootable at startup, so i used rawrite and wrote bootdisk.img onto a floppy and when it attempts to boot off of that i get the following error: "Boot failed, insert different disk". anybody know what the problem could be? thanks

    Extremely odd. Your bios doesn't support booting from CD-ROM?? The disk issue might be from a bad write? Did you try to re-write it?
