So how does one go about creating a bootable CD so that it allows access to NTFS file system and CD-writer drive to make complete image of the hard disk. These days all laptops come without an integrated floppy drive so to create an image of hard disk - factory standard (i.e. before starting the machine and setting usernames, dates, timezones etc) it is difficult. Ghost 9 requires to be installed first so it defeats the purpose especially when you want to reset the system once every year to clear the clutter that builds up over time and grinds the beast down to tractor's speed!.

Or does anyone know how to burn a floppy bootabl disk onto a CD. I have created a floppy disk and it works fine for me but for some reason I can't burn it on a CD such that it is bootable in the same way as a floppy disk.

Using your burning software select 'bootable cd' and then use the bootable
floppy as the boot image.
