G'day Ron,
     I think that the project you are looking for is "Smart BootManager" 
(SMB) -  the project homepage is ...

     The last time that I tried it (on a boot floppy), it did allow booting 
from CDs on older BIOSs that did not support CD-ROM booting - very useful.

     WARNING!  The project seems to now be defunct, but the GPL source and 
binaries are still available.


     For every complex problem there is a solution
           which is simple, neat and wrong.
