I wasn't sure if my pc was capable of booting from a CD, but there is a BIOS boot setting that says check CD-ROM first... so I picked it. Attempting to boot from the "rescue cd" yields:
isorom: Loading spec packet failed, trying to wing it
isorom: Failed to locate CD-ROM device; boot failed
The machine is a Dell Dimension XPS P200s, and I'm attempting to use a Sony CD-RW CRW160E. The drive works. (I'm running Windows 2000 on the pc now.)
Any suggestions on the cause/solution?
(on a side note, the Win2k bootable floppy spans 4 disks... why the crap can't Fedora come up with a multi-disk solution?)
