    Hola gentleman

    This is probably everyday stuff to most of you guys, but I haven't had a lot of experience with creating boot CD's.

    Now what I would like to do is take my 5 or 6 boot floppies that I use for the different models of PC's and get them all on a single CD with a multiple choice menu at boot to choose between them. I imagine I could use WinImage/UltraIso etc to make *.IMA's of the floppies, but how would I go about getting them all on the same CD and adding a menu? Any ideas? Sorry if this is a little low level for ya. I'm just new to boot disks. Thanks a TON in advance for any help!

    Not sure that it makes a difference, but We're currently using Norton 7.5 and I can't see them upgrading anytime in the near future.

    Well, since GHOST is simply a DOS application, you can create an MS-DOS bootable CD with the CD-ROM drivers. Then you put all the different DOS applications you want to run into separate folders on the CD, and use a simple batch menu to select from them. You can run any of them from the same booted O/S.

    If you need different drivers loaded for the different models, you can use the menu system inbuilt into Dos Config.sys to chose different config.sys options and different Autoexec.bat options.
