Many machines have either dual CD drives (one is a CDRW) or a DVD. All the machines I see now can boot from CD or in a pinch you can use that helper diskette noted to get KNOPPIX up and running.
K3b is very easy to use and doesn't require an OS installed to save your files.
Sorry about that "issue", but if we didn't go legit, the forums would sink under water due to too much piracy and "missing CDs."
didn't look at it that way till now.still need to know how to make backup files.but will not attempt to make windows disk.
