My pc has a buggy cd-rom and has no floppy (i shooted it out the window

use that boot manager or booting linux from dos or from xp?
Thanks in advance!!
Dunno if this works on XP, but you might take a look at loadlin.exe.
There is a mini-HOWTO on using it on Win 95/98/ME. It is a DOS program
that will start the Linux boot process from DOS, and I have used it
sucessfully in the past (but not on XP).
