Take the time to read the stickies before asking us to repeat answers.

If you continue asking questions that have already been answered, I'll lock this thread. Do some research.

Read them again. The answers are all there.

We took a lot of time to put those threads together .. the fact that you're too lazy to do some research is not my problem .. but it is annoying.

Finally, if you call me an asshole one more time, you're going to sit out for 7 days. I'm really tired of your attitude.

Unfortunately, "something about making a bootdisk" isn't real descriptive as to where you're having issues, not to mention your content is completely lacking.

Perhaps reading the Tips for getting help thead might be wise too...

I put the Tips sticky in my first post as well.

Since he isn't capable of taking advice, I'm locking this thread.

More name calling and you're done, dj.
