You dont know how to use an MS-DOS boot disk? Well, from taking a
quick peek at the manual, it ocurs to me that setting the floppy disk
drive as boot media is exacly the same as setting a cd drive as the
boot media, i would asume you did it wrong.

to page 82 for details of how to set boot devices.

You have something set up wrong or something such as bad memory that is
preventing the operating system from booting. Most motherboards have a
troubleshooting light system that helps eliminate the faulty component. Have
you checked for this? JJ
