    Creating Bootable CD's & DVD's

    Hi All,

    Can anyone recommend a reliable and FREE piece of software that will create bootable CD / DVD discs please. I know Nero does it V V well and I haev tried a few free ones like CDBurnerXPPro but it never writes anything otehr than it's own trest boot image correctly to the disc - and the burning can be flaky at times.

    Many thanks,

    Moose

    Hi, I have a bootable floppy that works well. I juist need to make the CD/DVD bootable using the FDD or an image of the Floppy.

    cheers

    IIRC, Nero will do this with a few simple mouse clicks.
