Does anyone know how to create bootable CDs using a CD-Writer?  I am currently using ghost and have several images that I currently have on a CD-ROM.  I am now booting with a floppy disk and then switching to the CD.  All the PCs I work with can boot directly from the CD (as long as the CD has boot code of course).  Any ideas, suggestions?

MasseyM,

That's only HALF a solution.  A "boot record" has to be created on the CD itself.  Then it will work.
