I have it set to FDD for the reason that was mentioned earlier...reformat. boot up disk etc. Yet, there are times I forget and leave in a disk (not bootdisk). However, I was thinking maybe I should set it up to first boot on my DVD-ROM. If I should have problems booting up, for whatever reason, I should be able to use my XPpro CD with the recovery console for a fix/repair. Right? Or should I use my XP floppy bootup disk? I prefer to have my recovery console fix the problem simply because it will walk me through the fix/repair. With a floppy bootup disk, I won't have this pleasure.
I have a P4B266. Does the F8 key give me the "first boot choice"?
