I have a Toshiba Satellite a85-s107 running Windows XP Pro, I have no floppy either

I cannot get the cd/dvd to be recognized even after reinstalling all of the drivers from the rescue cd using an external cd/dvd drive

If I could just get this dinosaur to boot to the external CD/DVD I'd be golden

My only choices in the bios are;
CD
HDD
LAN
FDD

Any ideas??

I don't seem to understand your problem.

You say your Windows doesn't recognize the DVD drive, right? Why do you need to boot off the DVD drive, then?

The system is not recognizing the INTERNAL dvd drive, I'm trying to boot to an EXTERNAL USB dvd drive
