    Hi Guys, I have forgotten what I have to do in BIOS so that I can make a computer boot from the CD. I did it last year on my own,when I installed XP, now a friend wants to do his. Can anybody help me out?

    In the BIOS, there should be an option for the boot sequence. It usually goes in the order of HDD, then floppy, then CD-ROM and then Network device.

    Just change it so that CD-ROM is the first bootable device.
