I was told by my motherboard tech to press the F8 key to envoke a BBS menu.
When I got home, I gave it a whirl, pressing the F8 key. I saw on the bottom of the ASUS splash screen it state that loading boot menu.
It is a DOS type of menu screen that shows the drives that are installed on the computer.
I was able to choose the DVD drive and let it run and it did choose the XP Pro CD that I had in the bay and run.
I think I am on my way.
I think this type of question needs to be in the FAQ somewhere so that us users can look there an find the answer rather quickly instead of stumbling on it.
