    could somebody remind me how to make your PC ignore a floppy disk left
    in it on start up. I had this before with previous system with XP Pro
    installed but now have new system with XP Home and can't remember how
    I achieved this before. Maybe it can't be done with XP Home??
    TIA

    It's a BIOS setting, go into Setup during boot and select the boot
    device priority.
