    The problem is: a system made out of old computers (only the harddisk and processor 'new') that runs on SuSe Linux 7.3

    With this system I should have to work with a acces2000 database

    I see two way's out

    - get a programm that can run acces ddb for linux (if you know one, please tell me)
    - install windows
    the disk has a 10GB fat partition for that, but I can't get windows installed , I have all stuff for a windows 2000 instalation, but the system's floppy drive is broken, so if I have to load the 4 windows 2000 bootdisks, makes a mistake in disk 2 or three (linux made it somehow) and the system hangs........
    The CD-Rom is old, very old (1995 or 6) and I fear it doesn't support booting .....
    So, how can I get a windows bootimage on the hard disk so lilo can load it and I can install windows,......


    (if you can solve this one your are - a genius
    - doing something Bill Gates will put you in jail for)

    Any special reason you need Access? Could you use MySQL?

    I must open a MDB ddb and edit the Visual Basic code, so if Mysql can do that, i could use that

    No, MySQl won't do that, but it is a fully SQL compliant database server. You could try OpenOffice (www.openoffice.org). Not sure if there is an access conversion in there or not, though. Sorry I don't seem to be of much help here.
