Maybe I need some direction where to ask my following regarding booting ANY-PC on Earth using a CD/DVD.
Who am I ?
I'm Timmo' at http://potchan.org (in-buiding stage). On my upcoming site I simplify a PuppyLinux fork, a linux dostribution named Muppy to a target of d' most lefthanded innocent users available on Earth.
My yet-three "technical demands" from a Potchan (=opener) user R:
- Can you send an email on your own ?
- Can you use a TOASTER without technician's aid ?
- Can you adjust 1st. BIOS boot to CD/DVD-ROM ?
(-this 3rd. one is an OBSTICLE to many innocent ones).
Me myself stand on a better place technically, but not too much better
Where I succeed simplification ?
The main Potchan sits on an unzipped folder 2Gb+ you put on root HD ("c" or "d" don't matter). You can do it from your Windows/else session.
Next, with one click the innocent user burns about 7M bootie files on a
This is AFAIK my succeeding so far without any help.
Where do I FAIL simplification ?
The CD doesn't "tell" PC where to boot itself. If BIOS is not configured
as CD/DVD to B its 1st. boot - the user I want so much is about to
freaks-out on me, or even worse: needs help from a buddy. This "buddy" (a friend/neighbor/Windows dealer) can help but it also unsimplifies process for me. A buddy can also influence "my" innocent one not to go-on with Potchan. So I lose my 'examplar' user before getting even my 1st. real one
So I'd wish that my 3rd. demand - a HUGE barrier to manyones - to be
So my question is :
Can my bootCD/DVD tell PC to bypass whatever BIOS says and boot from CD/DVD ? (If YOU don't have a clue, Who does ?)
