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?

You need to go into your BIOS and change the "boot from" options.. Most will let you specify the order in which the OS will look for a system disk... Change your CDDrive to the first and boot away!

MasseyM,

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