as the startup disk. You will need to enter the setup Configuration(BIOS) and set the floppy drive as first boot. I might ask if you really need to use DBAN just to re-install the OS because you can use the XP/CD to delete the partition(s) and start out fresh. Once the system boots to DBAN just follow the instructions as they are rather easy. If you do use DBAN there is no need to go back to the BIOS and change the boot order once it is finished as the system will find the Optical drive with the XP/OS CD.
I am planning to use DBAN to wipe my harddisk clean, but I never used it before and I will be grateful if someone can lead me through the important points, I downloaded it and there was something to do with creating a floppy, is that going to be used as a startup disk. please lead me through until I boot from the windows XP CD, I can carry on from there.
Regards, and thanks inadvance.
