Thread: Bootable Linux CD

  1. #1

    Bootable Linux CD

    I have linux installed on my laptop, but the other day i accidently saved the BIOS which has "boot from cd" *set > *So now whenever i turn on the laptop, i cant change the BIOS for some reason, and the only way to do something is if a bootable CD is in the cd rom. *So, since i cant seem to change it back to boot from hard drive, i was wondering if theres a place for me to grab the files needed to boot into linux from a cd rom. *I would use a floppy, but a) the floppy drive is broken and b) it only boots from CD ROM *:

    My install is Caldera OpenLinux.

    Thanks in advance,

    root=/dev/hda1 BOOT_IMAGE=boot

    to a command line on the installer.
