 Subject:  CD Boot Problem
 Date:  Fri, 14 Apr 2006 11:09:28 +1200

I have a Pentium 166 box (96M RAM) which I cannot get to boot from the m0n0wall CD, for the life of
me, having tried burning the CD 
closed and at the slowest speed available to me.

The BIOS is supposed to boot from CD's and does try but hangs.

I have failed to get later BIOS installed for the Motherboard, although tried extensively.  Seems I
cannot source the right version 
of awdflash.exe?!   (Soyo motherboard 5TF)

My question and suggestion is whether it could be done or has been done to make the floppy disc boot
into CD's in these 
circumstances AND contain the config XML?

In anticipation many thanks.

Kind regards
