I have a notebook without floppy. How I can install GAG?

    You can create a bootable CD, using the DISK.DSK file as
    disk image for the ElTorito FileSystem. Then just boot that CD.

    If you don't have CD... well, there's only one solution:
    recompile the source code as a .COM file and launch it from DOS.

    1. connect the USB floppy drive to your notebook prior to
    turning it on.

    2. include the floppy drive as part of booting cycle in BIOS.

    3. proceed as if you had native support for floppy drive

    4. prepare your GAG menu using a floppy

    5.reboot. You should now be able to add/delete operating
    systems and select between them

    Isn't there a cd image in the GAG distribution now? Shouldn't this be closed?

    Many of the Linux LiveCDs are including GAG as well. http://www.sysresccd.org has it.
