Hi,
I'm, greatly appreciating GAG because I want try linux,
as alternative to windows, but initially I'm afraid to
destroy something on my hd.
Now I'm using a floppy configured to start windowsXP
from the internal HD and Mandrake from an external USB HD.
How can I setup a CD (rewritable) for booting in place
of the floppy?

Thanks and CIAO

Alberto

    hi, don't know if your prob is meanwile solved. but with the
    latest release of GAG, a cd image is braught with.

    just burn the image to your cd-rw, check the option
    "bootable cd" and there you go.
