Use memdisk from syslinux.
thanks that works great.
Even though I use linux I help a lot of windows users
and I was curious how to tell them to do the
equivilant of "cat mbr.bin > /dev/sda"
under linux I did the following to build a usb
(I removed everything and created one fat16 partition
and selected it as active)
cat mbr.bin > /dev/sda
that works great but how would I tell a windows user
how to do that? any clues?
once its installed though any user can change it which
Do You Yahoo!?
