    I am having problems that could be related to bad memory, and have been told to use a program called memtest86.

    After downloading it, the readme tells me to put the program onto a floppy and restart the system.

    I dont have a floppy disk drive installed. :(

    I have a fdd but it didn't work when I connected it up. I didn't really see any need for it at the time so I disconnected it.

    Is there any way to run this program without a fdd?

    Would it work if I burned it to cd?

    Is there any other programs that I could use?

    Thanks.
