    I won't bore you with the details.

    Summary: Installing a RAID-0 on a friends computer, his motherboard has no support for a floppy and the only boot disk with the correct drivers for the raid card is on a floppy. The CD they come with isn't a boot disk, so I basically need a way to put whats on that floppy onto a CD in its intact same boot-disk format. I know it can be done, ideas?

    You can burn a bootable CD with many of the programs out there, or some BIOS's will let you boot from a USB device if you have one of those handy.

    Specifically, Nero has a feaure, when burning a data-type CD to make it bootable. This is in the express mode. I have never used it, but assume that was what it is for. It may not be the fix, but at least will point you in the right direction.
