BIOS Not Supporting CD-ROM

On some older machines, like Prefect (42.32), the BIOS cannot boot direct from CD-ROM so the machine needs to be booted from floppy disk using MS/Windows Millenium Startup floppy. This recognises the CD-ROM drive as drive D:. So simply run the BOOT command on the CD-ROM:

DOS> D:
   > CD INSTALL
   > BOOT
