    What do I need on a boot disk to be able to use a cd drive? Just mscdrom.inf or whatever it is??

    In what repects ?
    Do you wish to:-

    Install an NT based system like XP, or Win2K
    Or do you wish to start up in dos mode to install win 9X/ME ???

    For most of these you no loger need boot disks if you go into your systems bios by hitting del esc or F2 you should under onder of the option windows have a boot order have is boot from cd-rom first save settings and reboot.
    When it reboots it will launch an installer for the OS cd.


    Hope This Helps

    if you need the XP home or Pro boot disks you can find them on the MS website, search for XP Boot Disks

    It was to install 98se on an empty drive. I couldn't get it to work. Oh well. I will just buy a new drive an go with XP.
