Hi everyone,

It seems like my computer isn't set to boot on CDs for the moment. So I 
tried the Smart Boot Manager floppy. I was able to locate the correct CD 
driver (have two), but nothing happens except the drive starts spinning and 
stops after a while. Do I need to enter a password or such? If I after a 
while press enter again, the CD starts spinning again. This can go on for 
eternity... I belive. Does anyone know anything about this?

Regards,
/David R.
