I have a Floppy Boot Disk, with my organiseations registered version on Ghost, and the right network driver for the system.  The main problem is, floppy seem to die on me so often it is driving me nuts.  I have a boot USB key which is fine for everything but servers.  The servers boot from floppy or CD only.  How can I convert my floppy boot disk to CD?

Cheers,
IceRaven.

If you have Nero Burning ROM handy, you can select the option to create a CD-ROM (Boot). From there it's pretty self-explanatory. You can simply copy the data from a boot floppy (which I would imagine you'd do, since you already have the floppy prepared) or you can create it from an image.

There are also freeware utilities out there that I'd have to look up, but I just use Nero. It's pretty common so it's probably the easiest way to go if you have it.

Fantastic!!  Thanks for the information Aniras, very much appreciated.  Works so much better than the boot floppy!
