    Hi all,
    from my earlier message about the undeleteable folder. I have been told to boot from a floppy in to dos the problem is I don't have a floppy drive as I am using a laptop. I have read nearly all the help files about create a bootable cd, Most of these say that you must make a bootable floppy first then add the files required.
    Then burn these files to a cdr. Do i need to use the sys floppy to create the cd?
    Which files do I require? I am using Nero as my burning program.
    Thanks in advance again for all the help all the people have given me.

    E-mail me at and I will send you a zip of th files you need to make a boot cd. If you can restart in msdos mode, you could just do it that way too. Also, as your ocmputer boots up (if you are using any version other than XP) if you press F8, there will be an option to boot to a command prompt.

    But, like I said, if all else fails, mail me and I will send you the boot files.
