I could be wrong, but anytime I've made a boot disk using EZ CD Creator, it reads the files from the bootable floppy disk and then copies the files to the cd to make it bootable. So in other words, you probably need the floppy drive anyway to make the boot cd.

Again, I could be wrong.

floppy drives are $10.... might as well buy a new drive. As kingnothing stated... it will get the files from the boot disk from your floppy disk.

thanx guys for all the input,but the problem seems to lie in the
mobo bios which means if i try to make a bootable floppy i'll
end up w' a corrupt data disc and really fry my mobo,at least
thats what i read at the ecs forum site . i'm gonna build another
sys anyway so i'll make sure the mobo bios is different than the one i'm using now!:cool:

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
