I don' tknow what ASR is but restores can be done without a floppy.

Yes, you can, if you have Acronis True Image. It makes a bootable CD
which can detect network drives or load your backup in from CD's.
Probably other backup apps can do this also.

I meant you must have a floppy (CD won't work) if you are using the windows
ASR (Automatic System Recovery) feature of the Windows Back Up utility. Of
course, other programs will allow the use of CD. I use Norton Ghost.
