- Create boot floppies
If CD ROM will not boot, you can always create an alternative boot device.
STUX let you create multiple types of boot devices:
- 2 floppies

- Boot STUX from Live CD
To start the CD, set up the BIOS of your computer to boot off the CD, put the CD in the drive, and power up the computer. If your computer doesn't support this option, you have to use a boot disk. You can create this disk from the image in boot/stuff/boot.img on the CD.
