I've spent four hours trying to figure out how to make a cd bootable. Some kinds of computer info people don't explain because they think it's self evident or they don't want to be very good at explaining it. I think I've hit the jackpot there. I went through over twenty tutorials on making a cd that will start up when my computer starts and they are all complete and utter crap. I have all the xp files. I can make an iso. It's an xp pro installation. Will someone please please tell me how the heck I can actually put those files on a cd, have them all be on the cd, have that cd actually start when I turn on my computer, and have the installation run like a windows xp installation. And please don't tell me to use some program, list three steps out of the necessary thirty five to get it to work, and then say 'and that's it!' Thankyou.
