I'm in need of some linux configuring help badly!


I bought a Shuttle XP computer that came with Linux.  This shuttle doesn't have a CD drive, so I connected a USB cd writer/reader.

The retailer said that I should be able to access bios and change the boot order to boot from USB...which I already thought was odd, since I never really heard Bios and Linux being in the same sentence.

When I got to trying to set it up, I ran into exactly the problem I thought I would.  At the start screen, it told me to press f-11 to enter setup or else it would boot Fedora fc8 as the OS.  So I hit the button and now I have NO CLUE how to get it to boot from usb-CD so I can install XP-Pro since this is only for business use.

Please help someone! I'll be obcessivly checking back on this forum since I kind of have to have it set up and running by tmr morning....hopefully someone will see this sooner than later!!
