cdrom boot disk

I have a Ghost 6.0 image file on a cd which is not bootable.  My bios does not have the option to boot to cd. I want to make a boot disk that boots so that my cd works?

i'm sure u have the drivers for the cd-rom so try this one:

1. Make a bootable floppy. In DOS-Prompt type <Format a: /S>

2. Copy the following files onto the disk:
    <MSCDEX.EXE>
    DOS-CD-ROM Driver called <driver.sys>. If u have a mitsumi     CD-ROM it calls at example <mitsumi.sys>.

3. Then make a config.sys on floppy and add the following     content:
    DEVICE=A:\drivername.SYS /D:MSCD001

4. Make a autoexec.bat on floppy and add this stuff here:
    MSCDEX /D:MSCD001 /V

5. Boot up with your floppy. And it should work.

Thanks much. Got me going in the right direction. Now I can boot the cd rom and ghost off of cd instead of the network.
